Old Photograph Blairmore Isle Of Arran Scotland

Old photograph of cottages in Blairmore by Lamlash on the Island of Arran, Scotland. Early in 1889 a group of Lamlash businessmen who were attracted by the sport of golf decided to establish a golf course at Lamlash. The area around Blairmore was arable farmland at the time, divided by hedges. It had mainly been used to graze sheep and cattle, so the ground was naturally manured and already consisted largely of cropped grass. This easy start enabling the Lamlash men to create a few teeing areas and greens quite quickly, so that golfing could begin.
