My family has had a long connection with Dalserf, ever since the fourteenth century when King Robert the Bruce gave the lands to my ancestor, Walter Fitzgilbert, as a reward for his faithful services.

The focal point of the village is the handsome church, built in 1655 and to this day, a living place of worship as well as a picturesque landmark.

I am therefore delighted that Mrs O’Niell is writing this book, which will provide a vivid record of life in Dalserf throughout the centuries.
