Childhood Memories - a Memory of Tighnabruaich.

We moved into Tighnabruaich when I was almost 8 yrs old. Our 1st house was on the Ardmarnock Est between Millhouse and Otter Ferry. We stayed there for around a year before moving into Corra Farm on the Ardlamont Est near Ardlamont House.
I used to go to Tigh. Primary School before moving onto Dunoon Grammar School.
I remember Pamela Briggs, Val, Karen + Sidney Moebeck, The Dillons Neil and Tom. Angela Whyte. Frank + Pamela Coutts who lived along the road from me. As did the McCrae brothers  Donald + Iain just to name a few. I enjoyed the country life the peace and quiet without all the hustle and bustle of city life.
I've been back quite a few times to the old town and the farm either on my own time or as a tour driver with a party of visitors.
I could get very used to being a country gent.
In the immortal words of the song ''If I could turn back time'' I would in this case as I would have returned years ago
