Pauline & I are s This is either Jim or Jack Young in the flat cap, uncle of my father George Young. By the time we arrived in Cromarty Dr Forth's surgery was at the back of Paye House, but I believe before that it was in the Red House beside the Cromarty Arms/ I thought she lived in Paye House. Where is this? I have two pieces inherited from my granny, we used to do day trips from Inverness to Cromarty back in the days of the Kessock ferry, great memories!
