Description

Postcard of Marscalloch showing where the dam and water level now sits. Cairnsmore of Carsphairn in the background.

Transcript (Not sent) Mr Wright, Marscalloch ?1953
'That dark wood was cut down, and now forest trees on 3 sides of us (15 years old). I think spruce and larch and just as nice when larch sheds its leaves, they turn a beautiful russet brown, the lovely firs and spruce are all intermingled with the larch. This was Marscalloch 30 years ago before the dam filled up the valley. No hayshed now, I hear it was burned. Hydro electric board made this dam, and it's a never-ending joy to me. I love watching the ducks etc on water.'
