Holy sisters revered on Garelochside

ON THE HILLSIDE above Garelochhead there is a small sandstone monument near the B833.

Along a signposted track created by Ghurkas in 1992 and next to a picnic table, it is inscribed only: “Here Isabella Campbell was wont to pray.”

Rosneath minister helped university grow

THIS second story features the second Mr Story — fellow Rosneath minister Robert Herbert Story, son of Robert Story.

Both parish ministers were much loved by their Garelochside congregation, but while his father was in post for 42 years until his death, the son moved on to become a major figure in religious education.

Minister shared name with slave

THIS is the story of Mr Story. His son was also Mr Story . . . and his slave was Mr Story as well!

First there was the Rev Robert Story, the Rosneath Free Church minister, who had a slave who took the name Robert Story.

Was Rhu minister heretic or saint?

ONE of the most astonishing tales in the history of the village of Rhu is what was described at the time as the Row Heresy scandal.

In October 1825 the Church of Row, the then name for Rhu, called the Rev John McLeod Campbell to be their minister.

Another new chapter for church tower

HELENSBURGH’S seafront Clock Tower was put up for sale last year by owners VisitScotland, who used it as a tourist information office, and it was bought recently by a local firm.

It will be the start of the fourth chapter in the life of what began as the Old Parish Church.
