My Home - a Memory of Strathyre.
I was born in the Munro Hotel, which was built by my great grandfather.
Before that he was the teacher in the village school.
Growing up in the village in the 1950's was amazing. We had total freedom,of the hills and the river or out on bikes.
Our school was one classroom for all ages with a big open fire which we sat round in winter trying to melt our frozen 1/3 pt milk. My class was the biggest as there was four of us one of whom is still my best friend.
We spent our pocket money either at a travelling van which called in at the school or the village shop. How many sweets can you get for 3d.
The village hall had social evenings which all ages went and there was regular
dances with famous bands such as Jimmy Shand and Ian Powrie big names at the time.
I am happy and proud to have grown up in Strathyre.
