I was very pleased to see this photo as I am descended from at least a couple of the people in it, William Mackay (Bilsie)was my grandfather, Alec or Alecy Bilsie his son being my late father. On his immediate right, Margaret Mackay was his daughter, my auntie Margaret. It is quite possible that other members of the family including my father are amongst the group.
