A pair of terrors

Manse road council houses are not even built beside “dunvegan” What year would this be taken?

I remember being told by 'Kinnon' that they sold the croft land in the 1950's, Alex Stewart

I think possibly Violet Cameron behind Mrs Robertson ? Cameron Walker ?

Just lovely to see Mrs Robertson. A truly great neighbour.

Mrs Campbell, bankers wife and Mrs Kennedy.

Paddy yes 4th from right and Violet Cameron third

I think that’s too old for Paddy at that time

It would be lovely if some of these beautiful works of art have been donated to SWI HQ who hold an enormous amount of handcrafts which have been donated by previous members.

Travelled on this line to school from Luib.

I also traveled from Luib to MHS.Callendar,

Wow! Beautiful!

Looks like they have just built the wall thats now falling down.

Malcolm travelled on it from Luib station to Mclearen High School

It would be a Monday because it has the two coaches on to take Crianlarich and Tyndrum as well. During the week it only had one coach Friday it had two coaches to bring everyone home again.

Went to school on the Killin Pug 64/65 before landslide stopped it running then I had to bus it for my last year of h to mclaren high then off to start work in Perth aug66

Also went to McLaren High School from Luib 1958 to 1962...great excitement coming home on North Train on Fridays after a week in the hostel.

Great photo. I also travelled on this train to MHS from Luib staying at the hostel during the week 1957 to 1962.Happy memories!!

Charles nice one, l did try to post it but failed miserably. It's a lovely painting.

Lovely painting, I really struggled to get a nice painting of the Falls of Dochart, but found this one some years ago that I liked. I had to settle for a limited edition print of the painting. Anyone else got a painting to share.

Nice story Charles and nice painting. Shame she never got to visit

I don’t like mine much. It is in the attic! I have always liked your one.

Talented lady!

Duncan Twigg painted this one....

Wow I love that one Marion, I wonder how many he painted.

Great quiz last night - many thanks.

The question about the visit by Queen Victoria to Auchmore reminded me to ask a couple of questions:
* Is the large island at the head of the loch natural or man-made ?
* What do the locals call this island ?

Our Scouts in Edinburgh have been camping on “Sandy” Island most years since the 1950s, with grateful thanks to the Dowling family and previous owners. The story that we were told was that the channel between the headland and the island was dug to make it easier for the Queen to be taken by rowing boat from the steamer pier to the Auchmore boathouse in 1842. **Is that true ?**

Not sure which is the true story, but I had been told that it was so that the angling boats could access the loch quicker. The Queen Vic story sounds plausible🤔

I will add another version from my pal Dougal. The Earl did not want those going out in boats to pass infront of Auchmore House so got the "Canal" for the boats to use dug hence the name. The boathouse and landing with the twin pillers were built for the Queen's visit as with the main flow passing down the Auchmore side there was good depth right onto the loch. The island furthest out grows with silt and at very low water both islands become one.

I’ve always called it ‘the island’.

The. Island was formed by the digging of a canal to facilitate the use of barges carrying the output of some of Breadalbane’s mining projects. According to my father it was known in the Gaelic as Happy Island. 95th Glasgow Scouts and Rovers camped on it from 1951 for many years., other island was known as bird island

Many thanks for all of these contributions. Looks like "Sandy Island' is definitely man-made and all of the suggested reasons are very plausible.
