Ardenconnel_House2211.jpg
Ardenconnel House2130 viewsA B-listed mansion in Rhu, built by the Buchanan family in the late 18th century. Ardenconnel was one of the principal estates of the old parish of Row. It was bought in 1899 by the Countrywide Holidays Association, and by 1908 could accommodate 120 guests. The CHA is the oldest walking holiday company in the country, set up in 1893 to encourage participation in, and enjoyment of, the countryside, and to this day, while no longer operating walking holidays, is still working hard to fulfil the vision of founder the Rev T.A.Leonard. The mansion was later converted into modern flats. Image circa 1905.

Party at Arrochar694 viewsAndrew Bonar Law, on the right, on a 21st birthday outing to Arrochar with some of his friends. Image by courtesy of Arrochar, Tarbet and Ardlui Heritage Group.

James_Kay_-_Whistlefield,_Gareloch_-_oil.jpg
Whistlefield, Gareloch696 viewsAn oil painting by James Kay RSA RSW entitled 'Whistlefield, Gareloch', which in 2014 was valued at £9,500. Kay lived there at Crimea (now Dalriada), Portincaple for 33 years and worked in a studio at 79 West Regent Street, Glasgow. The house belonged to his brother Alec, a shipping office manager. The name was chosen when they moved there in 1909 because his father was a Chief Petty Officer in the Royal Navy during the Crimean War, serving in the Black Sea area. James painted an elaborate mural of scenes from the Crimean War on the walls of the main entrance. Image date unknown.
Cardross_Station3041.jpg
Cardross Station931 viewsA picture of a mystery celebration at Cardross Station. The bunting and Union Jacks, the waiting horse drawn carriages — and one early car — and the finery of the people in suggests a very special occasion, perhaps the opening of part of the station, or troops returning from the First World War, or even a royal visit? However it is believed to be the arrival of guests attending a wedding. The station was opened on January 15 1858, the line was doubled in 1883, and the bridge was built the following year.
Sir_William-1.jpg
Sir William Raeburn939 viewsSir Wiliam Raeburn, 1st Baronet of Helensburgh, is pictured in the large conservatory at his home, Woodend, Millig Street, in July 1933 with a visiting friend, Marjorie Pipon. Sir William was head of the shipping company of Raeburn & Verel Ltd. Image by courtesy of Dr Nigel Allan.
Hermitage-ward-w.jpg
Hermitage ward814 viewsDuring World War One from 1914-18 the Helensburgh Town Council-owned Hermitage House in Hermitage Park became a military hospital with a capacity for 58 patients who were sent from Stobhall Hospital in Glasgow. The wounded men in their blue uniforms were a familiar sight in the town, being wheeled around the park by their nurses. A number of local ladies and girls helped out in the hospital and the local Red Cross detachment also assisted the trained nurses. Many local girls met their future husbands among the wounded ‘tommies’, and patients were taken on outings in a horse-drawn carriage from Waldie & Co. in Sinclair Street.
neil-macleod-comet-w.jpg
Henry Bell's Comet568 viewsA painting by well-known Helensburgh artist Neil Macleod of Henry Bell's Comet, Europe's first commercial steamship, which had its bicentenary in 2012. Image by courtesy of the owner, David McGowan. Both also permitted Helensburgh Heritage Trust to prepare a limited A3 print of the painting as part of the bicentenary celebrations.

Balloch-navy-2-w.jpg
The Balloch Navy46 viewsWorld War Two Home Guard security extended around Loch Lomond, where the Rhu-based Marine Aircraft Experimental Establishment conducted top secret trials, but this was not the responsibility of MAEE. The fear was that German seaplanes might land on Loch Lomond, especially at night, so the ‘Balloch Navy’ patrolled the loch in requisitioned motorboats which were armed and flew the white ensign.
