Photos from the family album of Bill & Marilyn Ramsay, Nebraska
Picture is unidentified from Ramsay photo album.
Either the farm in the photo is the Ramsay farm located in Couston, Forfar, Scotland
or the Ogilvie Farm, located in Rutherglen, looking north toward Glasgow, Scotland.

Note the church steeples in the right-hand background.  A 1894 topographic map at the Scotland Digital Library shows there are five churches clustered together in Rutherglen called St. Mary's Church , St. Columbus R. C. Presbyterian Church, U. P. Church and East Free Church going from left to right. Could this farm be located on the rolling hills to the south of Glasgow with a view to the north?

 Are the other men in the photo all Ogilvie men or members of group
such as elders of the church?
