Heather and Brian Wade Visit Glenbuchat

In August 2014 during the Lonach Gathering weekend, Heather and Brian Wade from Western Australia visited Glenbuchat as part of their UK trip.

Heather’s ancestors were the Bremners of Glenbuchat Mill and Thomas Bremner had emigrated to Australia in 1855. Heather has previously contributed an article about the Australian adventures of the Bremner Clan.

Heather’s relatives included the Bremners of the Glenbuchat Mill one of whom, Elspet, died at Altnacraig, and the Dow’s of Peatfold.

During their visit they met George Farquharson at the Glenbuchat Mill. George is the last of the Farquharson family who have crofted at the mill for almost 100 years. The mill machinery had prior to his father’s arrival had been removed to the Mill of Newe

They also visited Peatfold and Altnacraig as well as the Glenbuchat Old Kirk graveyard where the Bremner and Dow ancestors are buried.
