Old Photograph Cottages Dalmally Scotland

Old photograph of cottages in Dalmally, Argyll, Scotland. In 1882, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Dalmally like this: Dalmally, a village in Glenorchy parish, Argyllshire, on the left bank of the Orchy, near the north eastern extremity of Loch Awe, with a station on the Callander and Oban railway, 24½ miles East of Oban, 62¼ miles West North West of Stirling, and 16 miles by road North North East of Inverary. Nestling among trees, and at the same time commanding magnificent views of the basin and mountain screens of Loch Awe, it is a favourite resort of anglers, and has a post office, with money order, savings bank, and telegraph departments, an hotel, a Free church, a public school, and a fair on the Friday of October after Kilmichael; whilst on an islet in the Orchy here stands Glenorchy parish church, an octagonal Gothic structure with a spire.
