Memories of Balmacara

School Years

Hi, although from the Orkney Islands I went to Balmacara House School for a year from 1971 to 1972, it was a great time in my life as I had not been out of Orkney much till then so it was a big step for me, I hope someone from that time reads this as I've lost contact with them all.
