An historical drive through Culbokie from East to West
This gallery of photos will cover properties that have survived from being recorded on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map of 1882 25 inch to the mile. The western half which can be found here. and the eastern half here.
March 2018 - the 'drive through' has been extended to four properties outwith the village that can be considered significant to the history of Culbokie; Tore Farm (soon to be demolished), Crochar, Teanangairn Cottage and Dunvournie Cottages.
November 2018 - we are indebted to Elizabeth Jorgenson, Ottawa for a series of photographs taken in 1913 of properties associated with her ancestors and local views of Culbokie which have been 'hidden' away on the "Descendants" page. To view these photographs click here and go to the Gallery at the foot of the page.

Our journey starts here. This was the site of the mill pond.
Shepherd's Cottage c1962. The mill pond was off to the left and the lade ran past the front of the cottage.
Used to be called the Shepherd's Cottage. The occupier was in charge of the sluices from the Mill Pond. The lade originally went past the front of the cottage where the car is parked.
The lade can be discerned as a shallow trough running down the left-hand side of the road to the Mill
The sole remaining structure for Milltown

The surviving structure of the Mill. It is half the height and half the depth front to back.
Remains of a side building
Same building; the lade came in on the right and is still discernible along the side of the road.
As captured in water-colour in 1879. The building in the previous photos can be seen to the left of the Mill.
