Hi Raven.
Any chance of a photo of Hillfoot Cottage, Oyne, it's at the foot of Bennachie. I used to live there in the late 70s.

Regards

Sailor :)

Hi, im also interested in hillfoot my great great grandparents lived there from 1891-1931. I went up but at the end of the road on the left there is a cottage called hillfoot. This did not match the photo i have of what i think is hillfoot cottage. However the road forks and if you carry on there is a house called nursery cottage. In some info i have come accross on the internet it says nursery cottage formely hillfoot?? So im not sure what house is what. Sailor can you give any info on hillfoot and its history? I have a pic but like i say it may not be hillfoot. And can you copy me into any recent pics you get og it.xx suzi.

Hi Raven & Suzi.
Sorry about the delay in answering but I am in the process of moving house from Spain back to Co. Durham, so I am sure you will appreciate the demands on my time and attention. As soon as we get in and the computer set up I will respond and thanks Raven for the offer of photographs. I have a booklet of poems by someone called Fordyce ( I think) who has some connection to "Hillfoot Cottage" so when I dig it out I will share that with you.

Regards

Sailor

Here is a photo taken from the book of poetry I mentioned earlier,as you can see it was taken in 1895 and that stone wall was still there when I lived in the cottage.

Hi there,
I am now the Owner of the property Hillfoot Cottage. Nursery cottage was formerly known as Hillfoot cottage but now is known locally as Nursery Cottage. I wondered if it might be possible to collate any pictures and history of the area anyone may have as we are researching the history of our house and the surrounding land.
Jim I believe you visited us when we had just moved in? If it was yourself it would be lovely to meet with you again to share your knowledge or even a brief history via e mail.
Sailor when I click on your pictures the site won't let me view them, might it be possible to have them e mailed?
Kind Regards
Vikki

Hi Caroline and a happy new year.
I have sent answer to Vikki with a photo and asked her to let me know if she receives it OK, if not I will try another way.As you say I haven't been on the site for a while as I have run into a brick wall regarding my own family research.

Take Care

Hi Leo, Thanks for posting the picture, when I click on the link though it says I don't have sufficient credits to view it or I am not authorised. Tad frustrating. Might I give you a different e mail address to send the picture to, if it's not too much trouble? I would also appreciate the picture previously posted in black and white and also the name of the book of poems by Fordyce with a view to finding a copy. Thank you again for all help so far.

Best Regards

Vikki

Hi Vikki.
Please send your other e-mail address to the one I gave you and I will try to send the photos again.
I think the booklet was "The Back Of Bennachie" but I haven't found it yet.

Leo

Hi Suzi.
very interesting photos. Quite different from the time I lived there. Any ideas of the dates.

Well I'm not sure if the property's are hillfoot in the picture but defo in oyne. The pic of family in garden is of hillfoot occupants. My grans is in the pic and looks about 5 so I would estimate the 2 family pics at c1920 x in censuses it says this family had been living at hillfoot since 1881
going to pull out the box today and see if there is more pics x

Hi Viki.
The mystery deepens as neither the photo you have posted nor the ones from Suzi are the same as the photo I copied from the booklet by "Andrew Galloway Fordyce Jnr. whose Grandparents lived there, it was a croft at that time and was known then as "Hillfoot".
