Donnie, Skip, Elvis et al in the Royal

Date Added: 01 April 2006 Contributor: Unknown Year: 1960 Picture No: 1607

Elvis spent only a very short time in Scotland on his way home from national service in Germany. He's seen here with Donnie Munro behind the bar and Skip Mackay facing the camera. Apparently, someone said that the pint glass he used is still kept on a shelf beside the optics although I don't believe it - I'm pretty sure it's Pete MacKenzie's!

Nice photo of Donnie, and some well known faces from Cromarty, and that's Raymond Maclean nearest the camera. Comment left on 01 April 2006 at 10:10 by Margaret Cassie ( Clelland )
The other man is Ken Shepherd. My g/kids are delighted to know that their g/grandad was in the company of the famous ELVIS - what a story for the future! Comment left on 03 April 2006 at 10:38 by Iris Winton
I remember the day this photo was taken. We were in the bar playing darts with Abu Shepherd. Comment left on 16 April 2006 at 23:22 by Frank & Sammy
