The photos on this page were contributed by Roger Mullin.
Roger's mother Mrs Isabella Mullin was a guide at Culzean for 20 years up
until her death in 1993. Her youngest grandchild Mhairi Mullin (below) is
holding a red box, with the Seal of the President of the United States,
which was a gift from the Eisenhower family to Mrs Mullin. When General
John Eisenhower, son of the late
President Eisenhower, presented it to Mrs
Mullin, he said it had been his father's and used by him to hold his golf
balls!! It was a personal gift in appreciation of Mrs Mullin's friendship
over a number of years. The photo of Mrs Mullin in the castle (at right)
is from the late 80s/early 90s. The photo of the staff at Culzean is from
the same period.
Roger Mullin was born and raised in Maybole and is now
living in Kirkcaldy. His mother (nee Meighan) was born and
lived all her life in Maybole, and for 20 years was a guide at
Culzean Castle. Roger has a brother Jim and Sister Margaret both living in
Canada. For many years Mrs. Mullin and her husband ran a bakery
business adjoining the Town Hall. The business in now long gone, but
many will remember it.
