1980’s Calderside Tractors

With thanks to Jim Cochrane for sharing these photos, mostly from the 1980’s of the farm equipment at Calderside. Jim added, “Here are some photos of Calderside Farm Steading in the 1980s”


This is the 1980’s tractor and machinery shed but was also used for bagged barley storage for part of the year. It was the original cartshed. It was built in 1825.


The photo with the open door into the stable … We used it for rearing the calves but at one time its housed 4 pair of Clydesdales. It dated from 1746 and all the the stable woodwork was solid pitch pine that you couldnt hammer a nail into.
