Great I hope to see Elgin some day.

Lorraine Marshall Wednesday 24th Aug 2005, 7:35am
Great site!! I spent most of my childhood in Bishopmill 1958-1969), my dad was in the navy, based at Lossiemouth. We lived in Esmond Gardens. I did go back and visit Elgin in 1989, everything that I remembered about the place came back, but it was a lot smaller than I remebered from a kid, but when you are small everything looks big. I did not realise how beautiful it was when I lived there but I think when you are young you dont appreciate things like that. My sister returned from Elgin last week, it was the first time that she had ever been back and like me said how beautiful it was. Some of my fondest memories of Elgin is the park and the sliding down Lady Hill on a cardboard box. Oh what fun it was to be a kid haha. I would tell everyone who is near there to pay Elgin a visit. I will return again soon. I now live in Wigan and its a far cry from Elgin!!

My ancestors emigrated from Barga, Lucca, Loppia in the late 1880's and 1892, to the USA./ Ermanno Panicali was a plaster of paris figure maker. His mother was Domenica Da Prato. I understand that Josephine Panicali's ancestors were from that area also. Thank you, Donna Panicali Negri

I am a long time admirer of vintage textiles and I recently received a gift of a beautiful blackwatch pattern rug/throw. I believe this is a vintage piece and I am seeking information about it's age and origin. There is a 4 inch by 4 inch cardboard tag attached to the rug with a single long stitch of cotton thread. At the top of the card is "MORASCOT". Beneath that is cat standing on it's hind feet with the words TRADE and MARK on either side of the cat. Beneath the cat are the words: Light Cashmere Rug. No. 726, Manufactured in Scotland The H.B. Mackintosh Co., Ltd., Elgin I would appreciate any information. Thank you very much.

Excellent looking site. Because of it, I believe I will add Elgin to my travel plans next year. If anyone can recommend a B&B for myself and daughter (18) or recommend any attractions (games, sports, etc) I would appreciate it. We'll be visiting from Knoxville, Tennessee. Thanks, keep up the good work!

Thank you for an excellent website. I found it by accident. You should publish it more, locally. It's been a pleasure to visit. J.B.

Crossed paths with some Elginites on holiday in Las Vegas USA. Quite a spirited bunch. Hope to visit this historic township someday. I hear the Heather throughout Scotland is inspiring as well. Great to see such civic pride.

On Sunday 9th March 2003, two Aussies were driving from Edinburgh to Inverness, via Aberdeen and Huntly. We saw your awe-inspiring cathedral on the skyline and managed to find our way in through the roadworks detours. It was quite late in the day (we'd left Huntly after 4pm), but one of the highlights of our trip was spending a little time admiring these majestic ruins. I found your Website when I was searching for a little historic background to go with my photos and put into my trip diary. A good information site for me, thank you.

Looking for anyone with connections to the Hesketh or Grant surnames in the Elgin area.

Tricia Cook-Bosnell Saturday 19th Apr 2003, 7:45pm
Family Tree includes Hesketh and Grant surnames from Elgin. Great web site! I already bookmarked it to look around more when I have time to enjoy the gallery photos.

Camilla Dallas Tuesday 11th Mar 2003, 4:43am
I was following up on the ancestry of the Dallas name, when I came across this web site. Our surname was derived from the barony of the Lordship of Dallas, an extensive tract of land comprised of 17 thousand acres lying within the Shire of Moray,...or Elgin, Scotland. Referred to as "Strath Dallas". The most northerly point was 8 1/4 miles S.SW of Elgin, and 5 miles S. SE of Fowles. The river Lossie ran through it. These site photos are beautiful.., and the information on the city is wonderful. Thank you. It is my wish to visit this lovely area...someday.

John Stewart Thursday 6th Mar 2003, 12:08am
hey just thought that i would leave a quick note to say that i have checked out the website and think its quite good! still waiting to get authorisation from area manager if we can put phones 4 U on the website?? >>[email protected]<<

Bill Stephen Wednesday 5th Mar 2003, 6:35pm

Bronwyn Blanch Wednesday 5th Mar 2003, 7:54am
Hi everybody from sunny Australia, my Aunty & Uncle live in Elgin so it was great to be able to look at some pictures of your beautiful city, and learn somemore about your heritage and culture! WELL DONE.

Hannah Johnston Tuesday 4th Mar 2003, 9:29am
Elgin is the best place in Moray for a great night out. I enjoy coming here every weekend. The people are friendly and up for a good laugh.

douglas duncan Sunday 2nd Mar 2003, 4:12pm
I can find no mention of Tourism or Accommodation on your site - often one of the first things a visitor looks for. Do you plan to add links to these items? Douglas Duncan Elgin Holiday House Member AGTB & Visitscotland

John Lewis Videlo Saturday 1st Mar 2003, 7:41pm
Greetings from sunny Guernsey! Good luck with the site. It is so good that we can keep in touch with 'home' through the internet.

Les Moir Saturday 1st Mar 2003, 5:48pm
We visited your fair city last year from west coast of Canada and were so impressed that we are planing a return trip. Much to see and do!
