Glenboggin's most famous native, Ellie claimed she was a regular in the nation's living rooms for 30 years - not that we could get BBC2 before 2007! (She's the one dressed up as a clown)

Wilma Maclennan (in her younger years) using the telephonic equipment. Wilma still mans the very same equipment today, having fought off all attempts to modernise it (as she wouldn't be able to listen in then).

Apparently a certain Mr Murdoch recently approached her asking for advice!

Gordie McBrodie
Gordie McBrodie

Ah Yes, sly old Gordie! Council Treasurer and ne'er do well Gordie McBrodie. Rumours abound that after he disappeared with the local post office takings, he quickly changed his name and was seen heading South towards Engaland. The oldun's still still sit around in the pub and speculate as to what became of him?

Just thought we'd add a bit of local colour.
MacWakity Spurtle Mark 1
MacWakity Spurtle Mark 1
The MacWakity Spurtle that won the 'Grand Universal Supreme Spurtle Champion of Champions' title in 1959. You can just make out Angus Murdo MacPhie is on the left.

Of course, this picture was taken just a few moments before the Spurtle broke free decimating a small village further down the hill. It's still known as the Spickety Spurtle Slaughter to this day (named after the village of Spickety).

Many of you may have also read Angus's book 'Spurtle Slaughter at Spickety', although, many still believe the novel is ficticious.

If you love these glorious pics of Glenboggin we still have a few copies of our 1964 calendar available for half a crown each.
