Strath Oykel school, Creich

This is the old school in Strathoykel, Creich, which was affectionately known as the Oykel University. My grandfather Christopher Ross born 1884 and his siblings are supposed to have attended it. They lived at both Salachy in Glenoykel and Caplich.

Note: Caplich, Glenoykel, etc., was sometimes known as Rosehall, Creich.

Can anyone tell us anything about this little school? There were a considerable number of people living in this area so presumably many kids went through this school.

Any information most welcome.

Thanks
Chris
