A bracing bath in Loch Ericht, memories of Charlie MacLaggan - and fishing! If you have other memories of Dalwhinnie people, Loch Ericht and local traditional sports such as stalking and fishing here, let us know below.

I love your description of taking a bath in the loch! We're too soft nowadays...

Really enjoyed that! I have fond memories of Charlie too! I was brought up in Dalwhinnie - the school in the 50's had about 28 pupils - so you were right about the number of bairns about the place.

Hi Dougie,

It's Avril ... remember me? I left my number with Janet. Give me a call some time.

Kind regards,


Avril

Great to hear of the old days in Dalwhinnie, and the characters, of which Charlie McLagan was certainly one.

I was born in Dalwhinnie in 1959. My father was Finlay Sutherland. My granny lived at 9 Ben Alder Road and used to work in the tea room.

Hi Jayne - I remember your father very well, and your granny - we always just called her Mrs Sutherland, and she was a great pal of my Mum. Mrs Sutherland used to be a great knitter, and I remember she made scarves for me and my sister - lovely they were too. My Mum worked in the tearoom too - she was a waitress and your granny was in the "gift bar". I remember your uncle, Frankie, too. When was it you left Dalwhinnie - did you go to Fort William? That rings a bell anyway.
