I remember Albert Watson. He used to bring coalto Jemimaville didn't he Clem? My granny used to buy it from him. A very nice man he was too. Comment left on 11 May 2005 at 12:11 by Mary Mackay now Harrison
A very favourite friend of mine as a young boy. I had many a rough ride on the Endeavour, and the Enterprise. Happily surived. Comment left on 31 July 2006 at 13:54 by Donnie Robertson
Nice to hear you are still around Clem. Your dad looks good in his uniform. We all knew him as the caolman. Last time I saw you was when you took Veronica and me to a party in Rosemarkie and very nearly lost it in the fairey Glen just before the bridge. It was snowing a bit at the time.

Yes Hamish, I remember that one too, severe snow, in Cathel Mackenzie's green Shooting Brake, steering wheel gear change, going downhill towards the Rosemarkie bridge. First attempt on a bad surface, using opposite lock to straighten. I picked up the hub cover some weeks later when cycling home from Kessock. Comment left on 24 May 2007 at 21:39 by Clem Watson
I have very fond memories of myself and my cousins going to Invergordon on the boat with Albert and not caring how rough the sea was. Our summer holidays were spent having a wonderful, carefree time in Cromarty. Comment left on 26 May 2007 at 11:10 by Rhona Garratt (nee Hogg)
I fondly remember Albert, James Hogg, Harry Gorge (knarsik) (if ispelt his name right), used to help on the 4.30 ferry run to Invergordon through the week and 3 runs on saturday. Harry fell overboard one day half way up the firth. We accused him of trying to poach salmon jumping close by. Comment left on 17 July 2007 at 16:38 by Patrick Parsley
All our age group of girls would go over on Albert's boat to have our hair done at Patrica's. Also we would go to the outdoor swimming pool which is no longer there. Comment left on 24 February 2010 at 22:00 by Gladys Shepherd nee Parsley
Rhona -you probably don't remember me but my brothers and sister and I used to stay at Lonemore in Cromarty with my Aunt - we called her Natalie - Nell MacLean. My brothers were twins John and Hamish , my sister is Christine and I am Shona. I remember Rhona, Shona, and Iona. Happy sunny days and total freedom.
