‘Swiss Cottages’, Priestfield Street


1999 Demolished Swiss CottagesAnother photo from the early 1990s. Can you remember Swiss Cottages, on Priestfield Street? I hope to write about these little cottages sometime next year as part of a more detailed look at High Blantyre.

Meantime, what can you tell me about them?

Blantyre Project Who lived in Swiss Cottages post WW2? Anybody know?M

Lillias Addison My aunt and uncle and family stayed in the first one going into Priestfield Street their name was Davidson

Blantyre Project thanks Lillias

Margaret Crookston We moved to Priestfield street in the 1980’s. A Mrs Wands and Rab Meldrum stayed in two of them and I think it was one of the Beatons in the other at that time.

Henry Hambley I hadn’t heard this name for many years and it brought back many nostalgic memories. Why were they called “Swiss Cottages” ?

Blantyre Project I have no idea (for the moment).
