PB THE CAIRN
Lochwinnoch through the Ages
We have lots of interesting Articles & Photographs
Lochwinnoch is lucky to have a rich photographic record of its history dating from the early days of photography in the late 1800's. This website is a "Cairn"* of a number of these photographs of the village and the people who lived there. An important aim of the site is to put names to faces and thereby preserve a more personal record of the people of the village. This project may already be late because many of those who can put names to faces are no longer with us.
*The word 'Cairn' used in this context means a collection.
Take a tour around the village. See the changes made over the years.
