Dalmunzie Cine Film

Below is a 46-minute video which is made up of 10 separate cine films given to Mount Blair Community Archive by Simon and Alex Winton of Dalmunzie Estate, Glenshee. The films were shot by Dennis Winton – Simon’s father and former owner of the Dalmunzie Hotel and Estate. The films are from the late 1950s and seem to go on into the 1980s.


NOTE: the music was added by the cine film transfer company. The original films had no sound but having sound – any sound – tends to assist concentration when watching moving images. There is the option to mute the sound.

An approximate timing of the video is as follows:

  • at just past 31 on this video, I found my Dad. He was gamekeeper and used to drive the wee train. It was so wonderful to see him. Died long time ago. Only live pics I have seen of him. Thank you.
