In 1999 Davie Kerr, filmed by Joe Knox and with the administrative assistance of The History of Armadale Association, recorded a walk around Armadale.
Nearly twenty years has passed and a lot has changed even since then. The skyline – where at one time, Davie’s father counted 44 chimneys in Armadale (and Davie himself remembered 38), and the bings have all gone.
The Madiera Mar Restaurant at Heatherfield and the ‘chaur hearth’ are a distant memory.
So even now, the video is ‘historic’.
Here is the map and information which was used at that time, and see what Davie had to say about the different sites in the new map below.
