A Donside Shooting Party
The above story about a Donside Shooting Party is written by Jessie Ritchie nee Henderson. It is possibly written about the 1930s, possibly for a WRI meeting. I am grateful to Fiona Haggart for supplying the copy of the essay.

Jessie Ritchie nee Henderson was born and brought up in Belnaboth Glenbuchat.
At the time of writing the essay she was living at Govals Cottage just outside Lumsden. The exact place of the shoot is not clear but it is in the hills of Upper Donside. It describes a 1930 shooting party with Jessie taking the provisions for the day up in panniers on horseback.
This picture of a shooting party on the hills at Glenbuchat shows a similar scene.
