Gardener, Photographer and Lad o’Pairts
by Geoff Newton
Anyone who spent holidays in Tighnabruaich during the first half of the C20th would have been familiar with the photographic postcards sold in the shops to send home to friends and relatives. There were local views, some including houses and people could say, ‘This is where we stayed’; many were of steamers in which visitors might have sailed. There were also photographs of local Regattas and notable yachts.

An introduction to the history of Kilfinan Parish, highlighting the west coast of the Parish from Ardlamont to Otter Ferry (Loch Fyne shore). In medieval times, this now tranquil shore was an important land base for the earliest Clan families: Lamonts, Campbells and MacEwens. The lives of the people who lived there were much affected by national events and politics through the centuries. The village of Kilfinan lies on the east side of Loch Fyne, north west of Tighnabruaich.
