Mansion had many uses

Fresh Air Fortnight at holiday homes

THE Helensburgh district is a very attractive holiday destination — and has been for many years.

That is the reason the area had so many holiday homes — most involved in the Fresh-Air Fortnight scheme.

Blairvadach and Broomfield

TIME is running out for Argyll and Bute Council’s imposing planning offices at Blairvadach, Shandon, overlooking the Gareloch.

Sometime in 2015 its staff will transfer to the bright and spacious new local council HQ being built on East Clyde Street, Helensburgh, overlooking the Clyde, as part of a community complex embracing the old Clyde Street School.

Clynder's four Holiday Homes

THE small village of Clynder once boasted four houses serving as holiday homes.

One was Hillside Holiday Home, while three others comprised The Grove Holiday Homes.

Street names honour two ladies

TWO streets in the Greenfield Housing Estate in the village of Garelochhead bear the names of village women — Mary Browne Walk and Francis Hendry Walk.

Mary Browne and Francis Hendry are remembered as great friends and benefactors of the village. When people ask about the names, there is quite a story to tell.
