History of Ballogie & District by Margaret Bond McCooey


A fascinating local book that is printed from an original book that was  beautifully handwritten and illustrated for an SWRI (Scottish Women's Rural Institute) competition in 1966. It went on to receive second prize in all of Scotland's villages that entered.

This time capsule of local life around Ballogie and its district is the creation by a local lass who grew up in the 1950's and attended Ballogie school 1952 - 58. Margaret aged 19 completed the 46 pages in the summer before attending Gray's School of Art in Aberdeen.
