💥 NEW BOOK LAUNCH AND COVER REVEAL 💥

I'm delighted to say my new book -The 'Lost' Village of Lawers - will be available from next week.
It's been a Lockdown labour of love for me really. I wanted to tell the story of the ruined remains of the old village of Lawers, that sits forlornly by the side of Loch Tay. Why was it abandoned and who lived there? And, perhaps, most intriguingly of all, I wanted to delve into the legend of the famous 'Lady of Lawers'. Who was she? When did she live? What exactly were her powers of foresight? I've also suggested some possible answers to questions about the enigmatic Lady that have puzzled locals for generations.
I designed the book to be a handy 60- page pocket sized guide, with directions, tips for your visit and lots of illustrations too. I hope it will inspire you to take a trip and discover for yourself the site of the near 1,000 year old village.
But be careful, don't go after dark - it might just be haunted! 👻
Signed copies of The 'Lost' Village of Lawers will be available initially from the Watermill Bookshop in Aberfeldy, and from amazon.co.uk. Other local retailers will follow next week, and I'd add these as they come on board.
Thank you to everyone for your support and interest. I hope you enjoy it :)

We always knew them as “Pat & Gibbs” but they did have a name for their band. Can anyone remember it?

Great photos.x

We left Renfrew Shire the year 2000 to live in Ballinluig, sadly Peter (Winkle)passed away last October,

I think they may have been “the glen players”

A few photos of my dad, Alex Bickerton's trip in 1961 for my uncle Tom's funeral. Most of the people in the first photo are Bickerton related. There are four faces I don't recognise. Maybe my cousin James Herbert could help me out. ... See MoreSee Less

Balfour Beatty mini bus?

The Capri was Mungos then Roddys

I was going to say it must be Pigeon’s. 😂

It was after Roddy

My cousin, Tommy Bickerton served his time there and left for Australia in 1969.

No James it was at Horwoods Tommy was an apprentice. I remember he did a for schools television programme when he was there.

Any photos or memories of Hercules the Bear? Was he to be seen roaming the land at Kinnell, or did he only come here for his holidays?On this day in 1980: Hercules the Bear was found. He had been filming a Kleenex advert on Benbecula when he disappeared after going for a swim. Presumed dead by wrestler owner Andy Robin, he turned up three weeks later in North Uist. The famous bear went on to appear alongside James Bond in Octopussy. In 2013, a life-size statue of Hercules was unveiled on North Uist. ... See MoreSee Less

When our kids were young Hercules performed in the summer in letham glen in Leven, Fife

Lived at kinnell.used to be driven threw the village in the back of a pickup

I remember that. My Dad was Bank Manager in the village at the time snd met the bear lol

You’ll remember this Morag Steele Fielding remember the April fools day uncle Neil MacKenzie pull on you and Morven 😂

Someone told me the story of him fishing in the river . The bailiff said he wasn't going to ask for his permit.

I saw him with my gran. I have a signed book too

Mind up at Sheriff muir inn with the dust cart and sandy mcmillian,sandy never told Angus macdonald the burgh surveyers son Andy had a bear,2 min later Angus was legging it back to the cart with hercules playfully chasing him

Maybe at Kinnell?

Some folk might remember when Ardeonaig Hotel ( then owned by the Russell family) had him and Andy Robin help open the “Rapala Bar “ - was a new bar by the Car Park. Can’t remember the year - but would have been mid 80’s I think.

I remember going to see him, maybe with playgroup? He ate yoghurts.

hercules enjoyed a pint or 2 of beer at kinnel also had a volvo bus that he used to travel in

My uncle was good friends with Andy & Maggie, father was down there often delivering hay & straw

John & Catriona went to see them Wrestle in Kinlochleven

I’m sure my Mum spoke about her often and I’m sure she said she had worked with Sally and they became good friends, but maybe it was another Sally 🤔 This is why I’m glad we have this page now to collect lots of memories of past and present before they are lost 😞

Wyvern I think

Right Gordon.

From memory, a Velox

I wasnt sure between the two models

Dad had a Wyvern in the 60s maybe it’s his car

Tommy Lambie also had a Wyvern for a short period of time

Alastair Mackenzie, can you comment on George Anderson's post?

It belonged to dads (Hamish) sister and her husband.

To far back for me. Can't recall the difference.between Wyvern and Velox. Think Crests had different grill and more chrome.
