Thank you to Al Lorentzen
"When I was stationed at RAF
Kirknewton, this cottage was occupied for many years by an
English family, Mr. & Mrs. Steve Whittles. Mr. Whittles was an
official with British Railways.
The Whittles family were very
hospitable and always made us very welcome in their home.
"Directly west, across Baberton Loan,
was a small post office/ newspaper agency.
The cottage was torn down many years
ago and I think there's now a car park on the site. I was
sorry to see this cottage gone when I last visited. I had
many fond memories of it..
If you went down the Loan, it led you
to a very scenic area on the Water's of Leith,"
