Crannie Cottage, Kilbucho :: NT0468
An interesting development from my visit to Kilbucho Church in 2010. I was contacted by Patrick Eickert in Canada, who had seen the Geograph images, [e.g. NT0633 : Kilbucho Church entrance]. He was looking for photographs of the old home of his 3rd Grandfather, John Stewart, who was an agricultural labourer and had lived at Crannie until he emigrated in 1842 to Canada with his family. The coordinates given led to a square patch in the middle of a remote grass field, 1.85km to the west of the church, and the other side of White Hill. A track was shown around the hill [OS maps], but the farmer reckoned it would not be passable by either my car or mobility scooter. The farmer generously offered to take me to the site in his pickup, and the photos here are the result of that visit. The general scene is set by the photo I took on a reconnaissance visit a few days earlier NT0534 : Pasture at Southside. There is a distant view, by Richard Webb NT0434 : Threepland Hill, taken in 2012.
