  • My great Grandfather Roderick Macdonald got the lease of the Whitebridge Inn about 1878 and then my Grandfather,Alexander (Sandy) and my grandmother Catherine bought it and changed it to the Whitebridge Hotel where it became well known for fishing and shooting holidays. I am not sure who owned it when the family sold it but my cousin Alexander and his wife Lydia bought it back sometime in the sixties until he died suddenly. My father Angus was brought up in Whitebridge and he and his brothers were great shinty players together with my mothers Fraser brothers from Foyers, her name was Grace.
