Edith and Charlie were my great grandparents!!!! This is AMAZING! They worked very hard and the family is very proud of them - Ronald, I should point out, was not an only child - he went on to be a big brother to two brothers and several sisters - my Nana (Hilda) was one of them! Thank you for such a lovely picture - I am curious how it came to be taken!

Our daughter Ruby Ann showed us this sight and we were delighted to find these photos here.
Charlie Fraser and Edith were my husband's grandparents. His parents were Alfred Charles Fraser and Frances Emily Thompson.Their three sons Donald, Allen and Malcolm spent some holidays at the Kirkton and after Malcolm and I were married we spent many happy holidays with our children at Craig Cottage in Glenbuchat, before we moved to New Zealand in 1972.We named our son after it in 1973 - Glenn Craig Fraser.

I have been researching Fraser family Glenbucket. My Granny was Annie Fraser, daughter of Hugh & Annie nee Archibald, who also farmed at Tullochcoy Crathie then Boghead Dinnet until 1947. I am researching the Fraser clan in Glenbucket and found this website that has now given me fantastic details to continue further.

The couple by the sythe ( Charlie and Edith Fraser ) were my grandparents. My mother was Hilda Fraser. I have many happy memories of holidays in the "Glen" creeping past my grandfather's bees or pinching his peas.
I would be happy to hear from any distant relative

Edith and Charlie were my grandparents too. As mentioned they had 10 children, Ronald, Alfred(Fred), Ernest(Ernie), Edith, Ida, Hilda, Olive, Cecil and Alice and Frances who died in infancy. Their grave is a black stone on the left just inside the entrance to Glenbuchat auld Kirk yard and there is a heart shaped granite stone at the base to Frances. There is an annual service at the auld Kirk on the third Sunday of August. I spent most of my childhood holidays at the Kirkton Farm and even before I was old enough to go school. I remember Ronald being a Souter (and also a gravedigger and stockman) He was a handsome man with a moustache and gold filling in a front tooth which I, as a child found fascinating. I used to play with his youngest son Hendry from time to time. I think our birthdays were about the same. As Ruby has said my father was (Alfred)Fred and I have two brothers Allan and Malcolm (Max) who recently passed away. I remember helping my grandfather when there was a problem with the lambing. He said that I had fine little hands! (As one does when a child!)
