Mains Farm Steading

As a supplement to picture #1247, the lovely steading at Mains Farm has a date stone over the central arch. The large version of this picture shows this in detail and gives the date as 1810 with some initials. This resembles a marriage stone and it may be that the initials identify it as just such a stone. Perhaps others can identify the owner of the initials (PBAEML) and the nature of the stone - date or marriage.
(My thanks to Gordie Davidson for pointing this out.)

Blimey, this pic takes me back a few years, to when I lived on the Mains with my brother Colin (double decker) and my mother Rita Macdonald.
My cousin and uncle worked there as well - Donald John Pirie and his father Donald, when Jimmie Davidson ran it with his son Ackie. Happy days.

One of the best Agricutural relics in Easter Ross. If it was where I live now some toff would have converted it into a very nice dwelling. It's good that it remains as it was.
