Getting to "The Point": the story of the Carradale Galbraiths
Carradale Village Hall, Saturday 22nd September at 7.00 pm
Christine Ritchie will give a fascinating talk on the life and origins of fisherman John Galbraith who came to live on the Point, Carradale Bay, with his family in 1858, followed by entertainment in the form of music, songs and yarns by some of his descendants.
Are you related to the Galbraiths or just interested in the history of Carradale? If so, you will want to come to celebrate the 160th anniversary of John Galbraith's arrival in the village. The highlight of the evening will be an illustrated talk by Christine who is John's, great-great granddaughter and music will be provided by his great-great-great grandchildren; The Twisted Melons and Gareth Croll amongst others...
On Sunday 23rd September at 2.00pm there will be a guided “survivor’s walk” to The Point, Carradale Bay, for those interested in seeing the ruins of the house John came to settle in 160 years ago
