My Grandfather Donald John Borthwick was born there in 1908 and my Great Grandparents Robert Borthwick and Margaret McKenzie were married in Lairg in 1902. I am very happy to be able to see pictures of the area!

Take me back in time.
We lived in Rosehall when I was young and have fond memories of life there. The primary school where my class consisted of Hector Mackenzie, Angus Mackay & myself and the school had 23 in total. playing rounders and Angus setting the wood on fire when we were burning the grass in the playing fields. Talking too much in class and getting the belt from the head "George Murray" on a daily basis ( he would be jailed in today's world but it never did me any harm ) Mrs vass trying to get us all to sing in tune, impossible task.
Going fishing in the Big Burn for brownies and for rainbows with Alan Gilmour on the Fuar loch, he rowed the boat all day and told us stories about his younger days (not the war) and tried to educate us on the highland wildlife. We would go up now and again to paint the boat. It was indeed a privilege to have known him and he should always be remembered as the real hero that he was. The clipping at Invercassely farm, Sam Moffat (Donald Morrison's grandfather), who worked as a drover when and many other interesting characters whose name elude me now.
Getting 3d back on Lemonade bottles from Achness Hotel, and playing in the hay barns that are now chalets.
Swimming in the pool below the bridge, freezing cold, and picnics at the falls on good summer sunday. Getting kilted and sent off to sunday school at the church of scotland.
All good memories when you look back.
