Happy memories

MY father, Donald Wolfe, moved our family to Helensburgh around 1965. We were there until about 1973.

He was the manager of Goodyear Tyre and Rubber Company near Glasgow. My brothers and I went to Larchfield and St Bride's respectively. And when Freda McRory's riding stable was still going strong, that is where I spent all my spare time!

Garelochhead hotel research

Ross Cameron in Forfar wrote on January 9 2009:

I came upon your Heritage Website while 'googling' for information about a Garelochhead hotel. My great-uncle Angus Cameron was the proprietor of the hotel in the latter part of the 19th century, and ended his days in Garelochhead.

Tale from The Barracks

Eduard Reynhardt, of Great Brak River, South Africa, wrote on February 6 2009:

I  am interested in the history of a building in Helensburgh which was in the 1890’s known as The Barracks. This building was in James Street, Helensburgh. Most probably the street number was 27.

Buchanan and Baird connection?

Tom Thorne, from Ontario, Canada, wrote on March 26 2009:

Thanks for putting this website on line. For those of us with a connection to Helensburgh but living abroad in Canada as I am, it is very useful.
