Jock Ritchie: Memories of Life in Lumphanan – Jock Ritchie & Scott Raeburn

Scott Raeburn would often meet Jock by chance whilst walking his dog through Lumphanan and up the ‘back track’. Over the course of many conversations Jock recounted tales of the people and places that make up the recent history of Lumphanan. The back track, which starts from beside the church and carries on for a little over two miles to the old Perkhill shop, has in the past been used by the military and drovers alike. Nowadays the only traffic on this scenic route are walkers and the occasional tractor.

Jock’s stories will be enjoyed by Lumphanan locals of all ages. Members of the older generation can take a trip down memory lane as Jock reminisces about the thriving community life in and around the village. For the younger generation, Jock provides a fascinating insight into what Lumphanan life was like before they were even born (as well as providing a few good stories about what their grandparents got up to in the olden days!). Although many things may have changed since Jock was young, it is clear that the sense of community in Lumphanan remains as strong now as it ever was.

This collection of stories can be seen as an important historical document of life in rural Aberdeenshire, and will be of interest to anyone who wants to find out more about the social history of the region. It is to Jock and Scott’s great credit that these events have been recorded for posterity in such an amusing and entertaining manner.
