Great to hear from you Alistair and thanks for commenting. Which house did you live in in Ardentinny? Must have been around the 1930s? – David

Alistair Cameron

My name is Alistair Cameron. I now live in Australia. I grew up in Ardentinny and lived just along the road from where your grandfather lived. At age of 13 I worked with your grandfather, Jock McIntyre, employees of the forestry commission. Enjoying this website. Hope to visit Scotland including Ardentinny later this year if I can, I am 92!

Hi there,

I was looking at you wbsite, which is wonderful, and noticed that you have a postcard published by my cousin, Mathew Gardner. I am currently researching our family history and wondered if you had the original postcard and any other information whih has not been published on your website.

I have some information which I would be happy to furnish if you wish to get in touch.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
