  Has the Kyleakin Terrace end of Arden escaped being tared with the same brush as the rest of Arden?

  Lived in Kilmuir Dr 1958 -1970, Puggy was our back door play area, best years of my life, what a change in it now... what a pity!

I lived at 21 kilmuir drive from 1957 to 1973, when I left to get married, I had a great childhood there. we played over the Puggy and in the RSD, it was such an adventure. We would also walk to the shady brook and fish for minnows and tadpoles. Skipping ropes in the street and th boys playing football or marbles in the stanks. Life was so easy then. I would love to hear from others who remember this too.

Hi Dotty, Don Cairns here, I used to stay at 30 Kilmuir road, then moved to 72, Kyleakin Road in the early sixties, What was your Surname, and did you have any brothers. I have just turned Sixty now, so have you any brothers about my age.

I moved to Carnwadric in the early 1960's and I must say I have some great childhood memories if anyone remembers any of them please do join in. I went to Carnwadric Primary School, and Miss Prentice was the Head Mistress, Mr McIver was the Head Master, Mr Henry was a music teacher, some of my own teachers were, Miss Smith, who became Mrs Robertson, Miss Frame and Mrs Glekin, I remember there was a male teacher, Mr Melvin, my big sister was in his class and I remember she used to complain about not being able to read his writing from the blackboard because he always wrote in what we called 'real writing'.

The sun always seemed to shine during the eight weeks we had off in the summer and those eight weeks were filled with lots of self made activities. My best friend lived down at the 45 bus terminus and our day would be spent in the old RSD, making houses in the disused shelters at the entrance, jumping on the shelters further in towards the exit at Thornliebank, the wee peaked roof tops, we walked about for hours in that place exploring and having fun. There used to be rope swing going across the burn up at the back end, and other rope swings downhill from the puggy. The one going across the burn was scary, some brave boys used to land on the brick tower, just thinking about it now makes my blood run cold. Another of the puggy daredevil rides was coming down the big red hill from the puggy to the frog pond across from the 45 bus terminus, never tried that either.

We had the bluebell woods up under the railway at Kennishead, and we had the wee burn to tadpole fish over on what is now the road towards Darnley and Priesthill. I had an Aunt and Uncle lived in Ravenscraig Drive so my 'pal' and me quite often walked that road to visit her, and play in the park or allotments on the way.

King George 5th Park was a great park then, we had lots of swings, the big chute with the wooden box on top, and the wee chute, roundabouts, spiders web, witches hat, and the big sort of log thing we all sat on and did the 'bumps' it even had a paddle pool which was filled every summer. Also there was tennis courts and Bowling Green, lovely rose gardens and most of all a 'parkie' you respected.

When we moved to Carnwadric there was no Kennishead or wee Darnley, no old peoples flats in Harport St, and not all of Arden was there either, we looked out of our bedroom window in Carnwadric Road onto the old railway, which ran across the street into the puggy. I loved it, so much so that I never left the area. After getting married in 1975 I lived in Priesthill, from there moved to a bigger house in Arden, and at that time Arden was real posh to us in Carnwadric because they were 'the new houses' with verandas and nice windows, and does anyone remember all the grocery vans, Savoy Stores, Isobel's, the big green one and the big red one which sat up in the Kyleakin part of Arden, we had a draper van, Shannon the fruit man, City Bakeries Van, the fish van, you name it we had it, Sammy the gentle giant Ice Cream man, did any of you recognise his son as Duncan in The Bill? Then we had the best shops ever, up in Arden, down in Boydstone Road, and up in Thornliebank as well as 'The Hut' the wee wooden shop down at the train station run by Jack. I am 53 years old and can still remember most of the shops and their owners, in fact I was in Florida about 10 years ago and met Isobel from the Pink Parafin shop in Boydstone Road, she hadn't changed a bit. There are lots of happy memories and it would be great if someone out there can share them.

Hi Mary, Don Cairns here. I lived in Arden from ( 1955 - 1973 ) I remember all the things that you are talking about. Especially the Park in Carnwadric. Many a time we played their, on the Tennis, and the bowling greens. I 'am ( 61 ) now, and still have great memories of the Place, and you are right, we did have some good shops and vans that came round the Schemes. It is nice to talk with you. I'am still in Glasgow, and I'am moving to Shawlands in June this year. I also remember playing up the Puggy,making swings from the trees and sliding down the ( Big Red Hill ) next to the Burn.
It is good to talk with you,
take care, Mary, all the best Don.
