Killin

Chapter 4 extract:  Bearing in mind his contribution to the founding of the club, it is a pity that the Earl of Breadalbane was not present at the [clubhouse] opening ceremony as within four months he died, aged 71, at the Central Station Hotel, Glasgow whilst attending a meeting of railway directors.  He was buried five days later on 24th October 1922 at Finlarig Castle, a short 300 yard walk from the second green along the old drive into the estate.  Near to his railway, his steamship pier and his golf course it is nevertheless a bleak place to rest.   Sir Gavin Campbell at least has his wife, Lady Alma Imogen Leonora Carlotta Graham for company, the last of the Breadalbanes; you would not want to spend the long dark nights of the soul alone in this place.
