THROUGH THE EYES OF THE PAST

AN ANTHOLOGY OF ARTICLES AND EXTRACTS ON THE HISTORY AND PEOPLE OF BUITTLE PARISH.
Welcome to my BUITTLE PARISH Home Page. I am a native of the area and have spent a few years collecting information and illustrations on many aspects of its history and people. These pages are intended to help me share this information with others interested in the area and its history.
Buittle Parish is in the South West of Scotland, on the north coast of the Solway Firth. Click here for an interactive map (look for Palnackie.)
Please use the buttons on the left to access the sections of the website.

The Story of the Scaur - and the Water of Urr shipping. By "Scauronian" (Samuel Murdoch Crosbie). Long article which takes a few seconds to load.  Please be patient. more>>

GENEALOGY SERVICES

I am a professional genealogy researcher, and can carry out family research for you in all areas of Scotland, with a particular expertise in the south-west (Dumfries and Galloway, Ayrshire and Lanarkshire).  
If you think this service can be of value to you, please visit my site at www.kith-and-kin.com
Stewartry Kirkyards Illustrated  Those of you who previously visited this website will notice that it is now no longer possible to view the parish gravestones through these pages.  I have launched a new genealogy/history venture at www.kirkyards.com and I now offer for sale a CD containing the inscriptions from every gravestone in both the Old Kirkyard at Buittle and the more modern cemetery nearby.  Each inscription is accompanied by a high resolution digital photograph of the gravestone, and contained on the CD are other items of historical interest. Visit the website for further information, and details of other products for sale.  more>>
