Loch Lomond frozen575 viewsIn the extreme winter of 1895 Loch Lomond froze over, and thousands of people came to skate or walk over the loch. This image from C.R.Gilchrist, Photo Publishers, Alexandria, dates from that time.
Rhu from Rosneath575 viewsA view of Rhu village from the other side of the Gareloch, published as a postcard by Winton, Stationer, of Rhu Post Office. Circa 1905.
Long Croft574 viewsA 1903 image of a drawing of and plans for Long Croft, West Rossdhu Drive, Helensburgh, designed and built by noted burgh architect and artist Alexander Nisbet Paterson. He lived there with his artist wife Maggie, nee Whitelaw Hamilton, and family for many years.
Rob Roy's Cave573 viewsThe entrance to Rob Roy's Cave on Loch Lomond, circa 1915. It is sited on the east bank near Inversnaid and was not so much a cave as a shelter provided by the fallen rocks. It is thought to have provided shelter for both Rob Roy and Robert the Bruce — the latter is said to have been saved from his pursuers when sleeping wild goats in front of the cave misled his enemies into believing it was empty. Rob Roy was for a time Laird of Craigrostan and Inversnaid.
Royal Train572 viewsNot a lot is known about this picture, but it is thought to be of local people greeting the Royal Train on the West Highland Line in 1906. The exact venue is not known, but it could be between Craigendoran and Helensburgh Upper, or near Garelochhead. Any further information would be welcome, and should be sent to the editor using the 'Contact Us' page on the main Heritage Trust website.

The Stockport-born artist lived on Seil Island near Oban for much of his life, and had a branch of his Highland Arts Exhibition business in Luss. Image circa 1990.
