Those who spot Mr John McFarlane at Balnahanait, who is described as the "Teacher of a promiscuous school", should not worry. The meaning of promiscous in this context is that the school was composed of all sorts of social classes, age ranges and abilities. It was not a house of ill repute.

Glenlyon HS Membership

The Society endeavours to meet three times a year. For meeting details see the bulletin board.
