Rob-Roy_s-cave.jpg
Rob Roy's Cave444 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.

Hermitage House443 viewsAn image taken not long before the 1963 demolition of Hermitage House in Hermitage Park. Originally the home of the Cramb family, who sold what was then called Cramb Park to the Town Council in 1911 for £3,750, the mansion served as a World War One hospital for the wounded, then became an annexe to Hermitage School. After 1926 it became a council workshop and store. Image supplied by Stewart Noble.
