Glen Creran gardener

I recently came across this photograph of a Victorian gardener who worked in Glen Creran, Argyll. The photograph was annotated with the name of the gardener: Peter Rankin.

To me Peter Rankin looks rather puggled!  It is quite easy to imagine that he had worked hard that day! His hands do seem to reveal that he was a hard worker.

I tried to find out more about Peter Rankin but failed. Whilst I found a death certificate I cannot be sure it is the puggled gardener:

After the lockdown I will go to Glen Creran  to walk and explore, and whilst there, I will re-imagine the life of Peter Rankin, the puggled gardener.
