Alex Glennie Year: 20155 Strathdon 'Inns'
Alex Glennie from Invercargill New Zealand is related to a number of Strathdon families, the Glennies, Watties, Grassick sand the Kellas families. In 1865 Alex’s great grandfather emigrated to New Zealand some years after his brother Alexander who had previously emigrated in 1859.
Alex’s father Charles Glennie started compiling a family tree and Alex has continued the work. He has now produced an impressive 252 page book outlining the Glennie family history.
In compiling his history Alex collected a number of photographs of the area and he has kindly forwarded them for display on this web site. Many thanks to Alex for sending the photos.
The common factor in the four photos below is that all the buildings are, or were, Inns at one time.
The photos above show:
1. Colquhonnie Hotel 1918
Previously Watsons Inn and The Newe Inn
2. Colquhonnie Castle and Hotel
With the Castle on the right and a Lonach Highlanded in the foreground
3. Heughhead Inn 1905
4. Rough Park 1905
Note that Park Villa had previously been known as The Candacraig Arms
