These pages are your pages, with your photos, your stories and your comments. Recording the history of Blantyre as you have experienced it, in your and your families lifetime. Without your contribution, it would be just another copy and paste site that you see elsewhere.

Blantyre has a fascinating historical heritage, probably more than any other village or town in Scotland can claim. Birth place of the famous Explorer and Missionary, David Livingstone, Blantyre offers a myriad of historical events and characters that can stretch the imagination. Besides Livingstone, we have many famous characters that walked the streets of our village and left their mark. Such as Lord Blantyre, Frances Teresa Stuart, David Dale, Major John Ness, Col John Clark Forrest, Andrew McAnulty and many many more.

We have also been blessed with more of our fair share of famous Sportsmen such as Jimmy Brownlie, Alex Menzies, Jimmy Carabine, Adam Little, Ken McKinlay, Tommy Miller and many more to be found within these pages.

You can go down ‘Memory Lane,’ for an hour or so by visiting Pictorial History of Auld Blantyre or enjoy the conservation between two senior Blantyre folk in a Bite sized chunk of Blantyre History.

You can take time out and relive your childhood by reading the many Poems about Blantyre and Poems about Miners.

And, what is probably quite unique, Residents of Blantyre can have their families Memorial posted in In Loving Memory complete with a photograph of the Headstone, for all the world to see. This means that families abroad can “visit” the graveyard and pay their respects by logging on to the site.

Finally, this web site could not exist if it were not for the sponsorship, predominately by Ex-Pats, which helps to cover the running costs. So, if you enjoy the site, please make a Donation.

We hope that you enjoy your web site and you are invited to recommend any resources or features you would like to be included within these pages.
