Old Photograph Strathkendrick Hotel Fintry Scotland
Old photograph of the Strathkendrick Hotel in Fintry village in Stirlingshire, Scotland. A Scottish village nestled in the strath of the Endrick Water between the Campsie Fells and the Fintry Hills, some 19 miles north of Glasgow. The village is located at the head of the Strathendrick valley high up on the Endrick Water. Alexander Spiers built a water powered cotton mill and whisky distillery around 1789 and the village developed to serve the mill workers. Fintry is a Church of Scotland Parish in the Presbytery of Stirling. The kirk is located to the East of the village. The parish minister for Fintry is shared with Balfron with the Manse located there. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
