This is a lovely old postcard picture taken from where the golf course is now located. The date is unknown but details in the larger version may help. In the left foreground is probably the location of the American Garden which formed part of the Castle estate. In the background the buildings of Dalmore Distillery and Dalmore Farm can be seen but there is little else built there at this time.

The first premises in the background used to be owned by Tuach's. Mr Tuach was a well known builder and he ran a very busy business here in the 40s and 50s. My cousin Roy Daniels apprenticed here as a brick-layer. I wonder if there is still the business here?

Hello Harry, the White cottage on the left belongs to the Kerrs' - I believe Robert still lives there. We were in the same class at school and I played there quite often. We used to have a few rafts made out of barrels on the pebble beach just to the left of the house, and we always had a firework party on the fifth of November. The Tuachs lived in the house to the right which is slightly further away from the golf course. There was an adjoining gate between the two gardens. I can't remember their name, (but think it was the couple who ran one of the chip shops, maybe after Roddy sold up) who lived in the smaller cottage further on before the railway arch to the Scotts house.

Hi Eddie, John Cameron and his wife Jenny still live in that house. John used to have the chip shop at the top of King Street and he is still "John the Chipper"

Eddie, I think the couple you are thinking about are John and Jenny Cameron. They took over the chip shop when it was at the bottom of Clyde Street, and later moved it up to what was Charlie Donaldson's fish shop, next to Jock the Barbers.

Hello Catherine and Gordon. Now I remember, thanks for reminding me.
