When my father Fred was a boy, he used to fetch blocks of ice from the pond up the Fairy Glen and take them to the ice house to be used in the summer by the salmon fishers.

Ice was transported from the pond below Fairy Glen house by horse & cart known locally as the Pows.to the icehouse at Kincurdy drive. there were more iceshouses at Chanonry Point.the Paterson family of Balintore salmon fishers owned Fairy Glen & house for years the Patersons were the salmon fishers of their time the best in fact.they set out a dyke of nets a very skilled way of fishing not much fish would get past.local girl Jenny Jack married Dan Paterson who lived in Fairy Glen house Jenny fished the nets as good as any man.
