A fascinating afternoon yesterday with a resume of No.0 history and your working of the old degree to celebrate our 50th anniversary at Armadale. All those I spoke with afterwards were very impressed and your brethren I sat with for the dinner were excellent company.
One of the best meetings I've attended in quite a while.
Thank you.

Hi , Fraternal greetings from sunny Leith    and even sunnier Burgandy!
I had the pleasure of a lunch time visit to The Mother Lodge with some French Brethren   who really enjoyed their visit by the kind asistance of RWM Ian Doule 
( and then Aldos fish and chips!)
 Their lodge    translated Trafalgars ritual 27 years ago   and this is now copied by 60 + NEW lodges throughout France who are desperate to acknowledge Scotlands masonic history  and R L Gislebertus 478 is regarded as The Mother Lodge of Rite Standard d'Ecosse  en France. The Grand lodge there have a different method of overseeing lodges consisting of Lodges of Instruction and the main one in Paris is called        yes you can guess   Kilwinning.  All from some french brethren thinking it was funny to visit L Trafalgar and enjoying the welcome !

Ive got to add more after last item   as I was born in Buckredden but brought up in Tattie town   where I was ( eventually) inspired to research some masonic history because of the name   Lodge Royal Arch   along with families mother lodge 320 also including RA in Lodege name , leading to a lot of interest over the years   and 3 yearbook blethers ! ( Whats in a name   RA lodges  1088)

Again Thanks to Ian  for making our French brethren soooo welcome

Dear sirs, I am researching my ancestry and found an obituary for my great uncle, Hugh Gardner, a member of the Lodge of St. John 543 F. and A.M., I think in the late 1800 s ..if you have any information concerning him I would genuinely appreciate it. His wife, Agnes Hopkin Gardner was my mother, Elizabeth Ross Boyd 's aunt. My mother was born in Glasgow and her father was John Alexander Boyd ,an engineer for sugar plantations owned by the Aspillaga Bros. in that same time period, late 1800 s, early 1900 . Thank you for any assistance. Sincerely, Elizabeth Garris.

Thank you for your entry, unfortunately you did not leave an email address to which I could respond.
However I have to advise you that we only keep records for Lodge Mother Kilwinning and no other Lodges.

Dear Brethren,

It was wonderful to find your site and browse through it. Our lodge is a Scottish Working Lodge  in Costa Rica and we use the same colors. Our rite is the Scottish Craft Ritual of St. John's Masonry. Would you know of any Lodge's in Scotland that might use that same rite because we would love to make the connection ?

Fraternally :.

Fraternal Greetings,

I confess to dereliction in not sooner expressing thanks for the hospitality of Lodge Mother Kilwinning when I visited last September. I must say that in all my travels I have never felt more welcome in a Lodge of Freemasons. It was an evening I hope to follow with another before long. Thank you all!

Fraternal greeting to all brethren at Mother Lodge 0 Kilwinning.

Your website is of great interest and is very well presented. I am from the island of Malta and currently the RWM of lodge St. Andrew 966 the only remaining Scottish lodge on the island. We have also about two years ago reponed the RAC Caledonian No 325 which was dormant for few decades.

On behalf of all my brethren we wish you well and hope that one day I can come to visit you.
