Auldgirth, The River Nith c.1960

Memories of Auldgirth


I was born in Hayfield Cottages, Auldgirth in April 1931. My first year at school Mrs Garthwaite was my teacher. She lived in the house just north of the school. In the mid 30s my brother Bob and I saw an airship fly over Barbra Mill. Can anyone else remember that? Aulgirth sports were held in the field across from the inn. We (...Read full memory)

My father Colin Seaton was born and raised in Auldgirth, he was the youngest of 5 children. He left Scotland when he was 17 and now lives in australia. Does anyone remember the Seaton family at all? I visited Auldgirth back in 2007 and there wasn't anyone around that remember my fathers family, any information would be great

i went to school with one of the daughters who lived in this house she said it was very creepy. last year 2013 my son attended closeburn nursery with a little girl whos family are now living there and they said there are not so much sightings now but they do continue to hear and feel things particularly in the upstairs of the house.

My G.G.G.Grandmother was Elizabeth Jardine. She was born at Auldgirth in the 1700s. She married Matthew MacDougal. When visiting the areas of interest around Dumfries, a Mr. Crockett from Dunscore, explained that Auldgirth had been a big farm at one time in the past. Does anyone have any historical information on the site?
