Corra Castle is situated at Corra Farm, a quarter mile from Kirkgunzeon. As a child I went to collect the milk churns with my dad in the lorry and around all the other local farms and then took them into Dumfries Carnation Milk factory.

I Was Born Here

I was born at 4 Threave Road on the 31st of January 1955 at the then home of my Uncle Bill and my Aunt, Nan Telfer. That's a long time ago. I was brought up at the Billies Farm where my dad was the dairy man. He went on to be the janitor at Newtown St Boswells in the Borders, but sadly passed on many years ago. I was a pupil at the primary school and have fond memories of playing on 'the hill'. I have not had a chance to return to the place I call home for over half a century, but some day I will. I cannot believe that I am the first to post a memory! My brother and sister now live in Galashiels and I am in get in touch!

I am looking into the history of King Street in Castle Douglas and have been told there was a church, where exactly I am unsure, but if anyone could help with names or pictures I would very much appreciate it. I have heard that it was situated near what is now a convenience store.

Scottish Young People's Orchestra, Castle Douglas

Oh my, happy times. Every Saturday was an exciting excursion from Minigaff to Castle Douglas to orchestra practice at Castle Douglas in late 1968+. Other members that travelled with me were were Margaret Whittaker, Jill Bannister, Fiona Simpson. Are you out there? It would be lovely to hear from you...
