Book­shelf mys­tery solved

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

ARY MIERS’S ex­cel­lent fea­ture on Ari­saig House (Au­gust 24) has pos­si­bly solved a mys­tery for me. My grand­mother, who was the pro­pri­etor of Ari­saig Ho­tel from about 1919 to 1949, had a small ‘book­shelf’ (right), which I in­her­ited.

How­ever, I have re­alised this was ac­tu­ally a cor­ner shelf and have been told that it had been carved by a ‘Mr Gib­son’ who lived at Wood­end, the last house be­fore the en­trance to Larachmhor Gar­dens. I won­der if this was also a prod­uct of ei­ther John Macqueen or ‘Mr Gib­son’. Mar­garet Camp­bell, Ed­in­burgh
