Remember I used to time leaving for school after lunch to when the “puggy “ went up to the junction!

Apparently my dad Allan and his brother Cameron Walker found a very very dead sheep one day. Being wee townies they decided to take it helpfully to the butcher's . He wasn't too pleased. ... See MoreSee Less

Ali Jenkinson I know a good story about Tig, maybe Big Bill or Andy Curtis and a dead sheep. You should ask him 🤣🤣

Oh, my great uncle really should have been more grateful 😂

Has anyone got pictures of old Crianlarch? I’ve been doing some editing on train sim and put my grandparents house on it (Laural Bank). It’s not completely correct and some poetic license has been used but If anyone who has pictures of the railway and the Main Street would be much appreciated ... See MoreSee Less

So pleased to be a new member of this site. I’m spending some time at Morenish Mews and would love any information or pictures of the building when it was a coach house. I am also loving Ian’s posts about local railways as my 6 year old grandson is showing lots of interest in local trains. ... See MoreSee Less

You made it to the site, Stuart!

25 years since we sold Morenish Lodge & started work on Morenish Mews. Lots of fond memories.

Stone from the old bothy was used for the new foundations.

Great photo. Many thanks. My daughter is now the owner.

Travelled the south/east side of Loch Ness yesterday. Single track with passing places eventually arriving in Fort Augustus. Along the way we saw the sign for Killin and curiosity got the better of us. Travelled 6 miles up a very picturesque Glen to arrive at a dead end and a large mansion house. Saw a herd of deer on the way. Still think there’s only one Killin!! ... See MoreSee Less

There is a Loch and river Killin near Fort Augustus I think.

It's near Gorthleck Garrogie was our holiday destination many years ago when we were kids with our aunt and uncle. I remember being in the mansion house.

There is, only one Killin ! and cann'ae be, only one Killin.... right?.

My Killin is in Perthshire

Only one Killin for me and that's in Perthshire.

There is also a Tyndrum on that road too!!

Brilliant! Is this your own footage? I can help make the wobbly shots of the Diesel toiling up towards Glen Ogle rock-steady if you're interested.

Wonderful to see this footage. ...but painful too😖Unbelievable shortsightedness that the railway line was closed😔😡

How on earth do you find these gems ??

Fabulous, just sublime, those BR standard tanks were the business.Handsome too.

Think we should put a collecting tin in the co-op to raise some cash to reopen the line.😄

Keep ‘em coming

Amazing footage

Henry Dey Your cycle track!

Very nostalgic. Arrived in Killin via the train when I was much younger.

I can still hear the sound of the diesel working hard as it heads towards the summit of Glen Ogle. My dad started with LMS in Killin and then went on to be the signal man at Killin Junction. In the mid 50's he headed to the bright lights of Glasgow to continue his career with BR until 1986.

When did the line close?

Amazing film, great to see, thank you for posting. Closed just after I was born, 1965. Agree it would be wonderful if it ever opened again.

Lovely to see this. My Dad was Stationmaster at Crianlarich (Upper and Lower) from 1962-76. Obviously Lower closed mid 60s?

Ask Colin McRae

One of my nephews was born in Tigh na Finn.

This may be of some help.

Freddy Aitchison and Joan Aitchison my mum and dad started there married life there in 1965 in the bottom flat . We lived there for six years and my younger brother norrie was born in the house as there was a terrible snow that year December 1967. I might have some pictures somewhere.

Jill Anderson’s family lived there for many years top flat.

My father heard somewhere it was built by a lawyer. The name is connected with the followers/ soldiers of Fingal.

Thank you all, this is all very interesting.

I lived there from ‘87 - ‘93. Don’t know the history. Speak to Colin Mcrae
