Two 2 Pins readers have been in touch to ask for information about houses in the area. If you have any photos or stories that will help them then please get in touch with someone on the committee or email


“As a child I used to summer at my grandparents house, Pinwherry House. I wondered if you could point me in the direction of any old photos of the house. Thank you”


“I am writing from Canada and I am wondering if you can tell me where I might find information about Daljarrock House, Pinwherry. Is it now a hotel and caravan park? ….. that is the only thing that I have found on the web so far. My husband and I are hoping to make a trip to Scotland this autumn and, although I know little of the family history, I believe the house belonged to my ancestors many years ago. They were Macphersons, MacNeals (later spelled Macneil) and Campbells. Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to give.”
