A regular visitor to Rosehall for fifteen years - was sorry to see the Stalker Adam Spokes move away.

I am up to the Outer Hebrides in October and the Boarders in January, but have a hankering to travel again up to Rosehall.

Is the stalking still going on, or has have those in power ruined it?

Family and Rosehall
How thrilled I was to find this website. My Grandparents John Ross and Annie Ross (McLeod) lived in West Lodge in Rosehall. My grandfather worked in the ‘big’ house. My father Ian David (referred to as David) his sister Barbara (they were twins) and their younger sister Kathleen were all brought up there in that house. My dad went to Rosehall Primary School. I have a picture of him there in 1938 when he would have been 11 years old.. My grandfather’s sister Catherine Ross (Kate) lived in the area too. Also my auntie Ina (Dolina?) who was my grandmothers sister lived in Rosehall too. I know I had other relatives there, but it was such a long time ago now. My grannie and grandad lived in Cassley Drive after retirement. My auntie Ina (grannie’s sister) lived over the back in a little bungalow. In fact I was on holiday in the North of Scotland two weeks ago and we visited Rosehall. Such a lovely quiet peaceful place. I just love it there. It holds such happy memories for me. So I don’t know if anyone who reads this happens to know of any of my family?

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!
