From The MacDonald Album  Ivy Cottage
C1-003 From The MacDonald Album

Ivy Cottage Was a Shop run by Jane Fergusson from late 1800’s. She was assisted by her sister Mary Speirs and her niece Mary Duncan. Mary Speirs died in 1901 and Jane Fergusson died in 1925 (she was the Aunt of Jane Fergusson at The Old Inn Shop).

Mary Duncan carried on the shop for a number of years.

There is a large stone below the window facing the road and village children climbed up on this to look in the window at the sweets.
