Guests who have stayed at The Lodge, Blackford have shown an interest in how to find out about their Scottish ancestors and in visiting the places they came from.
We would be very pleased if our guests let us know if they are looking for information about their ancestors. We will do our best to help.

Dundee, Fife, Angus and North Lanarkshire are all within an hour’s drive of Blackford. These areas all have local Councils which hold records about their own areas.

Glasgow is Scotland’s largest city. In past centuries, many people from the city itself, and the rural areas of the west of Scotland, set out from Glasgow to emigrate to other countries. Glasgow is an hour’s drive from Blackford, or an hour by train from Dunblane Station.
