Margaret Tong (Cowie) Are you from Buckie by any chance?
Added by Pat Swanson on 14 January 2005
Hello Patrick:
I am originally from Buckie. I spent my summer holidays with my Cromarty Granny, Ena McLeman. I have lived in Berkeley, California, for 27 yrs. I keep in touch with my Aunt and Uncle, Jean and Dod McLeman and cousins, Carol, George and Jacqueline.
Added by Margaret Tong on 14 January 2005
Just same - Margaret I spent holidays with Evan (the Post) & Ena Ferguson. I remember you from then. I was known by Patrick then.
Added by Pat Swanson on 14 January 2005
I believe I am first on the left on the front row and my sister Katherine Douglas is fifth from the left on the same row. We had long hair, always worn in plaits, and I wore the kilt. We lived about three miles out on the Old Evanton Road.

Hi Helen - You have got it wrong that is me Margaret Clelland now Cassie first on the left front row. I don't remember a Helen Douglas in my class at Cromarty School.
Added by Margaret Cassie (Clelland) on 02 January 2006
I Think that's Sidney Maclean ( Raymond's Brother )...middle row ..second from right !
Added by John Macdonald on 02 January 2006
You're right John that is Sidney. My brother and I were just looking at it yesterday. It's nice to see you keeping in touch with Cromarty. John and I were having a good laugh going over old memories. We both send our love and often think of times gone by. Best Wishes Margaret Cassie (Clelland).

The large girl with the sailor suit in the middle of the middle row I think is Eva Dwinger whose parents worked at Newton.
Added by Hazelclark@telus.net on 27 March 2008
Yes, Hazel think I your right. I remember her being in Miss Smart's Class. How's that for a memory ....lol?
Added by John Macdonald on 27 March 2008
That is definitely my old friend Rosemarie Hogg front row third from right, seated next to another old friend fourth from right, Irene Howse.
Added by Dorothy Ewen ( Robertson) on 27 March 2008
I'll have a guess at a few of them. Back row: 3rd. from L, George Watson. 3rd. from R, John Doull. Last on R, Richard MacPhee. Middle row: 2nd. from L, Arnold Eastwood's younger brother. 3rd. from L, Dennis Morrison. 5th. from L, Ingrid Shepherd.
Added by Christopher Hart on 29 March 2008
Arnold Eastwood's brother was Ronald.
Added by Dorothy Ewen (Robertson) on 31 March 2008
Hi Dorothy I remember you too however I'm 4th from the right back row, sadly Denis Morrison passed away a few years back.
Added by Ronald Eastwood on 02 May 2008
Second row fourth from right looks like Rhona Cameron (daughter of Bank Manager).
Anonymous comment added on 03 May 2008
Sorry, Ronald. Think that face belongs to someone who also lived in the houses opposite the bottom of the Denny. Sad to hear about Denis. Often wondered where in the world he'd got to.
Added by Christopher Hart on 04 May 2008
Sorry Christopher, but Ronald is right, he is 4th from the right back row. Why I'm so sure is because I went to school with him and he is also my cousin. Happy days Ronald when all we had to worry about was getting to school before the bell rang. How's life in Edinburgh? Give my love to all the family. Christopher, hope we will see you again in Cromarty it was nice meeting you last year with George, I was telling my brother John that I had met you.
Added by Margaret Cassie ( Clelland ) on 05 May 2008
Hi Margaret. Nice to hear from you. Give my regards to John. Maybe it's my grammar that's to blame, I'm sorry for causing confusion now. I understood after the correction from Ronald, that he was actually there, but fourth from right on the back row. I was rambling on about the boy, second from the right, middle, that I had at first thought to be an Eastwood. I think that whoever he was, he was a friend of Denis, and lived as did the Eastwoods, in the same area. Look forwards to another visit to Cromarty.
Added by Christopher Hart on 05 May 2008
Hi Margaret tried to drop you an e-mail but can't seem to pick up your adddress, hope you are all well.
Added by Ronald Eastwood on 06 May 2008
Hi Christopher, second from the right middle row is Sidney Maclean. Do you remember him?, Sidney still stays in Cromarty. Ronald sent you an email hope you get it.
Added by Margaret Cassie ( Clelland ) on 06 May 2008
Front row 3rd from the left is Sandra Mackay. 3rd from the left back row is that Donnie Robertson.
Added by Ronald Eastwood on 07 May 2008
Ronald I think that is George Watson not my brother Donnie Robertson. Is that `Robso` Shepherd far right middle row?
Added by Dorothy Ewen ( Robertson) on 07 May 2008
Rosemarie Hogg is my grannys cousin.
Added by Scott Mackenzie on 13 September 2008
Front row, fifth from left (our left) is Carol Fulford (nee Bremner), my mother, who moved to the midlands with my grandparents, Jackie and Marjory Bremner, and my uncle David, in about 1960.
Added by Iain Fulford on 18 April 2009
Isn't the boy 2nd from the right in the back row Heather Hossack's brother. I don't remember his name.
Added by Hazel Clark on 19 April 2009
Yes your right there Hazel ..just can't remember his name...Maybe Heather gets on this site now and again ..and she can put us out of our misery !
Added by John Macdonald on 20 April 2009
It's Donald Hossack
Added by Margaret Tong on 20 April 2009
The boy 2nd from the right on the back row looks like Donald Hossack.
Added by Rhona Garratt on 20 April 2009
I think Janie Heddle (my sister) is first on the right, front row, though I cannot find her twin Margie in the picture.

Added by Linda Norman (Nee Heddle) on 01 August 2013
