Tulloch Primary School 1898

This photo was in an old album. It is labelled Roy Bridge School and dated 1897-8. I can recognise my grandmother's siblings Flora, Jeannie, Sandy and perhaps Jimmy (Camerons). I know that they lived at Roy Bridge at one time but also at Achluachrach and Achavaddie.

Keith, which ones are Sandy and Jimmy ? I remember your grandfather well.
Added by Sally MacKenzie(Simpson) on 01 June 2012
Jimmy is 2nd row , 2nd from the right and Sandy is above him.

Also I dont think the Cameron's or "Lassies" as they were know never stayed at Achavaddie or Achluachrah. James Cameron and his wife stayed at Strathossin Corror and then moved to Tulloch March and then to the Gorge Roybrigde. Keith
Added by Keith Wilson on 01 June 2012
Was talking to Jimmy Cameron who lives in Spean and he told me about Strathossin ,Tulloch and the Gorge. I used to go with your Mum and Dad and your Sisters up to the Gorge for picnics, that was after everyone had moved to Keppoch Terrace.

Flora is back row second from left and Jeanie is middle row fourth from left. My father's birth certificate ( John Cameron, born 1 May 1911) states that he was born at Achluachrach. I also have a postcard from 1907 addressed to Tinnie (Christina) at Achvaddie (sic). so I would assume that some of them stayed at those locations at some point in time. I also have an old photo of Glenroy with a stone house which is labelled Achavaddy (sic) stating that my father lived in the area as a child. The information that I am receiving is astounding considering that this is over a hundred years ago. Thank you.

Allan ,I have told James Cameron ,Son of Tommy, about your quest. He is not familiar with computer but said he will get his daughter to get in touch. Do you have the name of your great-grandmother? There is a possibility that she might have been the sister of my great-grandfather, Thomas MacGregor.....

Added by Sally MacKenzie(Simpson) on 11 June 2012
Sally, my Great-Grandmother was Jane McGregor, born 23 january 1853, died 17 May 1926. Her parents were Alexander McGregor and Christina (nee McRae)
Added by Allan Cameron on 11 June 2012
Well hey, they WERE brother and sister. I knew that there was a relationship to the Camerons,but did not know exactly where. Mystery now solved.
Norma MacInnes and Keith Wilson who have commented previously are grandchildren of Alexander Cameron.

You asked about The Gorge... we always called the house where they lived as the gorge but I suppose it was really a very very small area where the River Spean cuts very deeply through the countryside. The house was very close to the railway. Maybe Keith or Norma have a photograph,as I said before,I used to go picnics to the area with them as a child. Happy days.
My grandfather was also called Alexander MacGregor
Added by Sally MacKenzie(Simpson) on 12 June 2012
Allan ,incidently,Thomas MacGregor married Ann Cameron and they had 8 children. One of them was called Teenie and I think they lived for a while at 2 Brunachan which may be the house you have photograph of in Glenroy??

Added by Sally MacKenzie(Simpson) on 12 June 2012
Do not think we have any pictures of the Gorge will check with Keith , remember the good times we had as kids picnics to Bunroy also Bouline

I have just "stumbled" upon this website and am hooked ! My grandmother was Alexina Lothian nee McIssac who lived at Murlaggan with her deceased sister Flora's husband Donald Rankin ,I have been told in the past that there are links to Cameron in our family and I think perhaps Alexina and Flora's mother may have been Catherine Cameron . Can anyone confirm this or any connection?
Added by Catherine Worden on 12 January 2013
Hi Catherine. I vaguely remember your Grandmother , I am sure there are lots of local people who will remember her well. I remember Donald Rankin when he was quite an old man. Did you know there was a photo of him in a Shinty team, on this site? Just put his name into the advanced search and it will come up. Hope you get the info you are looking for. .
Added by Sally MacKenzie( Simpson ) on 13 January 2013
Sally thank you yes I have seen the Photograph and another Photo with my uncle Bob Lothian in it . Am really enjoying this site and it has brought back may nostalgic memories , even the distinctive smell in the local village Shop!

I was responsible for organising the renovation of Brunachan Cottage as an open bothy, with permission from Colonel Tapp, in 1986. (Sadly it is currently closed due to winter storm damage). 2 Brunachan is where the byre is now I presume. Achvady further down the glen was then a roofed structure with the roof loosing its slates. Within 10 years the roof was gone, with the walls collapsing. It was quite a tall building with quite a small 'footprint' - unusual for the Highlands. I'll be very curious and pleased to see a copy of the photograph referred to above.

Do you know if Sandy MacIntosh's mother was a school teacher before she married Major MacIntosh. The teacher above reminds me of her, will explain more when I catch up with you.
Added by Mary Collier on 31 March 2014
My Grandfather was Neil Dougherty and my Granny was Anne. She moved to Paisley with her 5 children after he died. My mother was Mary. The other children were Sarah, Cathie, Willie and Brian- I think.
