I am clearing out my Aunts house and have been researching her family history, her father was Adam Reid Callam, there are 2 portraits of her grandparents or gr ones on the back of one is addressed to Mrs Thom of Braehead Glenbuchat but the people in the portraits look much older generation than 1950s or 1960s I cannot find any link to Callam's and Thom's, any help please, thank you

The picture is of my Granfather Alexander Robert Ross Thom (Sandy Thom) who retired from Beltimb Croft to Balgrennie Cottage.

Adam Callam's sister Jessie's married name was Mrs Thom, I have some great photo albums and these 2 large portraits, I am planning to visit Glenbuchat in the summer for a few days to pay tribute to my Wee Aunt Gladys, would be great to meet up for a natter and share these images.

Mrs Thom of Braehead Cottage was probably my Great Grandmother, if the man had white sideburns he would be my Great Grandfather William. After WW1 she always wore black.

My great great grandmother was born there in 1849. Her name was Elizabeth Fletcher. Father, David Fletcher.

On furher enquiry this relates to Balgrennie cottage Logie Coldstone
