Greetings / Hello Mallaig
« Last post by David Duncan on October 24, 2001, 04:32:00 AM »
I checked this site several months ago and was excited to read Veronica nee Gillies message I see she received 4 replies (ok 1 was mine) but since then nothing. I do remember her as a most energetic and attractive young girl with lots of personality. Still I really thought Mallaig would have more excitement by now than I read in the email version of the WESTWORD. (no disrespect Mrs Martin, I think you do a great job! Living in a backwater in the Bahamas I remember Mallaig as being an exciting place, maybe its just the usual case of the grass being greener elsewhere. If there is anyone out there who remembers the Duncans of 15 Lovat Terrace I would like to hear from them. Insults accepted too

Local History / Knoydart & Photos
« Last post by shardy on September 22, 2005, 12:47:04 PM »
Hi there !! To anyone who happens to read this!! I just thought that I would let anyone know that they can see a selection of old photos from Knoydart - mainly pre-1950's - back to around 1880 - on this site

I will try and add as many photos as I can in the immediate future....this little (amateurish) site is basically made up from family photos....mainly involving McPhails and McPhees....anyway, thanks to Fiona-Ann Ogilvie, Theresa Quigley, my Dad, and my late Gran for various photos.....more to be added soon!!

If anyone else has any more photos please pass them on to me!

All the best from Barcelona....

Hello George, I left a message on the Mallaig Noticeboard several months ago, but no replies. I stopped checking. Today I checked again and read your message. It took me a few seconds to place you, I believe you had 2 names, George May or George Macinerney am I right? Or do I have the wrong man? I lived in 15 Lovat Terrace, second of 7 kids, My father was the baker. in 1965 I left school (Fort William) and went to sea with the Merchant Navy. I lived in Saudi Arabia for 7 years and the Bahamas since 1983. Before I continue, I wait your reply to see if you are the George I remember. George Young, Peter Maclean, James Manson, Robert Macmillan were in my class, Albert was a year ahead so was Victor. write back, David

Perhaps the most vivid memory I have of my youth in Mallaig is going to my grandad's (George May) kippering shed after school and asking him to wrap a fresh kipper in cellophane and cook it in the slow burning smoke fires...Never in my whole life have my sences been so alive - the aroma and taste of that wonderful juicy package just could not be described. I left Mallaig at age 15 in 1962. My mother is Sadie May who now lives in Melbourne ( I am just north of Sydney) I went to school with Albert Cunnell who was my best mate . Victor Cruden is my cousin. There is not a day goes by that I don't think of mallaig and the joys I knew there - I have lived all over Australia and the USA and I don't think I will ever seen anything as beautiful as a sunset over Skye. I would be most pleased to hear from anyone from Mallaig. all the best. George May

Hello Colin George and Vi are my uncle and aunt.....however George passed away some twenty years ago, and Violet now lives in Glasgow to be near her family Gail and George. I myself live in the north east of Scotland in a village called Strichen. You're certainly right about George and Violet they were a lovely couple, we used to go up to Mallaig for our holidays when our two children were very young and we have very happy memories of Mallaig. I will pass on your message to Violet. Regards Margaret Mitchell.......

Back in the 70's my father was the foreman for the company who painted a lot of Mallaig and I spent a couple of weeks there. I can still picture fishing off the dock catching mackerel. The smoke house was on the bottom end of the dock. Everytime my dad would go back to Glasgow we lived on Kippers:-)) We stayed with George and Vi Stronach and I've tried to find info on them. They were the salt of the earth! George was the master butcher for the Co-op and Vi could cook like food was going out of style. If anyone remembers them please get in touch with me. Mallaig has got to be the most gorgeous place on the planet bar none. I now live in Redondo Beach California which is gorgeous, but nothing in comparison to Mallaig. I hope to get back there someday. Do the sheep still walk about the streets? Colin Monaghan
