COMPLETED (Thank you) Youth Hostel in Killin 1958-60
« on: Monday 16 September 19 20:12 BST (UK) »
Can anyone read the name of the Youth Hostel from this 1958 certificate?

Perhaps someone with local knowledge can work it out?


It's a sad story of this birth in 1958 followed by death in 1959 from scolding which I suspect happened at the YH, although the baby died at Glasgow Infirmary.

I can't make out the first word, sorry.

Would there have been more than one youth hostel in Killin? Not sure. There is this:

Hostel name: Killin
Grid reference: NN570339
Nearest town: Killin, Stirling

Killin Youth Hostel was opened in a former doctor's house, Tighndhuin, in 1942, and ran without disruption until early in 2008, amassing some 320,000 overnight stays.

Tighndhuin was demolished earlier in 2011 in favour of a development of 14 new homes on the site.

 ;D I think you are right, Sandy!

Just been looking through the BNA. All the references to the hostel in Killin are simply for the Killin Youth Hostel. The hostels are normally only referenced by location aren't they, rather than given names?
