The Last Spinner in Carsphairn

Mrs McLellan was thought to be the last spinner in Carsphairn, immortalised in this postcard.

She lived at Greenfoot Cottage and you can read more of what we know about her in the exhibition The Last Spinner.


Mrs McLellan's spinning wheel was presented to Stewartry Museum, Kirkcudbright by Miss Alice Clark Kennedy of Knockgray in 1930 and is still on display there.
