Many of these faces are recognisable about the village still today, particularly Mr McF in the front row who doesn't appear to have changed one bit!
The old Primary School was built in 1890 by the Saddell and Skipness School Board and was in use right up until the start of the 1990's when the new school was opened. It is now a private house and whilst internally it has changed considerably there are still a lot of original features to be seen, if you know where to look.
