    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

    Sailor and Jim haven't been on the site for a while, but if you send them a PM (private message) by clicking under their names, they will receive an email to let them know that you want to contact them, so long as they haven't blocked the facility in their settings.

    Welcome to the forum, I hope they get in touch soon.

    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

    Many Thanks for getting in touch on here. Can I confirm where the picture was sent to as I have not received it as yet.

    Best regards

    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.

    Regards

    Leo
