I was very fortunate to live in a part of this lovely house when I was 12 yrs old… 1962 .. An era when the race course was active, across the road…
I used to regularly cut pretty flowers to put on a delightful small table in the enterance.
Thanks for that Laura. It sounds nice a lovely memory. Do you have any photographs from your time at Ochiltree?
My Great Great Grandparents & their family lived in this house in the early 1880’s, I have attached some photo’s I have of it.
What a beautiful image Cary, thank you for sharing!
