Attractive, informative website! I have visited this area several times and it is certainly beautiful. My grandfather Alexander Field Chisholm was raised in Vermont after his family immigrated.
great site looks beautiful in stathglass can't wait to visit the place my ancestors came from
Thank you so much for doing such a great job with this website.
Also thank you for making my own story a part of the Highlands History
Stayed in one of the chalets at the Slaters Arms July 2012. Great accomodation, loved the views and Angela and Scot were very friendly and welcoming. Very handy being so close to the pub and restaurant. I'm sure we'll be back!
Just to let people know that the Strathglass sessions are going from strength to strength with more musicians venturing out of the closet !!! We meet in the Affric Bar , Cannich, The Tomich Hotel and now also at the Struy Inn at fortnightly intervals. Keep up to date by visiting this website or Ness Link to see dates, venues and times.
Would love to hear from anyone who remembers the Cannich youth hostel and David and Rachel Cathro ( my grandparents ) who were wardens there in the early 1960s.
Glen Affric and Strathglass area is indeed the 'Jewel in the Highland Crown'. How could you possibly ruin such a crown by blighting the area with horendously ugly wind turbines. I note one of your 'financial benefits' is to 'address fuel poverty'. Are you not aware that wind turbines which are only viable due to the vast subsidies they receive, will do more to increase fuel poverty, not only for those in this area, but nationally too. The only real benificiaries here will be the land owners, and those on the board who get to spend electricity consumers subsidies. You should be ashamed of yourselves for spoiling such a beautiful area. In years to come people will ask 'Why did we allow this to happen?'
whens the next music session ? and can the lady box player I met at Spiers and Boden concert get in touch,she could join www.melodeon.net and say hi to everyone there.
Recently found my 3rd Great Grandfather John Chisholm born 1792 Strathglass not sure when he came to Canada or who his parents were. He married catherine Walker in Nova Scotia Any information would be great.
Great looking website Jim
Thanks, keep up the good work !
