Weavers Cottage

The second cottage on the left up the hill at Belnacraig is Weavers Cottage. Until about 15 years ago this was a two room cottage with a tin roof. Now it has been modernised and a large porch added.

It is difficult to say, from the Census returns, who actually lived in any one cottage on Belnacraig but one can assume that a weaver lived in Weavers cottage. The following are some of the weavers who lived on Belnacraig

1822
Kellas - March 1st 1822 – William Kellas Weaver in Belnacraig & Elizabeth Farquharson his wife had a daughter born in the first March & baptized & named Mary on the twenty third before witnesses

1935
George Tait , was Postie at Glenbuchat for many years. He was born in Aberdeen in 1906.
After training as a Telegraph Messenger, he was appointed Postman at Glenbuchat in 1925.
After his marriage in 1935 he lived at Weavers Cottage. He served on the RAF from 1941-1945 and when he was demobbed he went back to Glenbuchat and remained there until 1959 when the postal districts were amalgamated and mail vans took over from bicycles, to help cope with difficult conditions . He moved to Altdachie, Strathdon at that point and retired from the Post Office in 1966
