RING OF ABER
Ken Campbell, a local resident and musician, has put together a video of photographs taken by the late John Ross of Aber, Gartocharn. John spent many hours walking in and around Gartocharn, taking hundreds of the most amazing photographs reflecting his keen eye, sense of nature, and humour, and capturing the essence of this whole area through the lens of his camera.
The video was created in memory of John, his wife Christine, and friends who have also passed on: Celia Burn MBE, Captain Hugh Leitch, and Elsie Nisbet, of Aber, Gartocharn. The music 'Ring of Aber' was composed and recorded by Linsey Aitken and Ken Campbell to celebrate this wonderful part of Scotland.
You can watch the video on Youtube by clicking here (to watch in HD click on the settings button below the video and choose 1080p).
KCT ULTRAFAST BROADBAND PROJECT
It has not been possible to proceed with this project as the Scottish Government R100 scheme is now active. KCT are disappointed about this but hopefully the R100 scheme will reach most people. You can see what is planned for your address by entering your details on the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband website.
Please contact gartocharn.org if you would like any events, calendar dates etc included on the site or if you have any suggestions for the website.
