Fifty years ago the proprietor was Nelly Moir, eventually succeeded by Peter MacDonald the piper.

More recently, Margo MacDonald of the S.N.P. and M.S.P, and an Independent, who passed in April 2014 was the landlady. (p.s. I used to call in on my way home from work and she used to serve me in her bare feet.)

Another piece of Blantyre’s History bites the dust… After 268 years of being called the Barnhill Tavern, the Oldest Pub in Blantyre is now officially called, “The Hoolet’s”. Hoolet's Nest
