Gatehouse was estabished as a Burgh of Barony in 1795. We have a transcript of the charter under "Old Documents".

As part of the Bicentenary celebrations in 1995, the Community Council arranged for George McCulloch to edit a booklet which expressed peoples' feelings and memories about Gatehouse. This booklet was called "Gatehouse Memories" and we list it  under "Gatehouse Bibliography" on page "History of Gatehouse".

We have transcribed a copy of this document, as it reflects many of the reasons why we started this website, in order to record such feelings together with photographs. We have now gained approval of the Community Council to be able to include a copy here.

The booklet contains a sizeable amount of poetry, more of which we intent to include under "Poetry & Lyrics".
