I was delighted and amazed to come upon this photo, because, unless I`ve got my dates wrong, Murdo Macpherson was my dad and David Macpherson, my uncle. My dad was born in Rogart in 1920, to Murdo Macpherson and Jessie {nee Murray). When I was young they stayed at Ceol-na Mara Achvandra Muir {the Poles) I`m hoping someone out there can verify if I`m right or wrong?
