Jimmy Mallaig, what a real character! I met him once or twice in Inverness, complete with wooden beads and small windmills. Greeting him with '' at now jimmy oo are thee keepan'? an' 'at are thee
deein' wi' a' that blessin' gear aboot thee? ''I always wear this when I'm oot on the toon lookin' smert,
an' folk thinks am daft, But thee ken this....I gets a lot o' free drink for beein' daft!!'' What a happy man!

I think my first memory of Cromarty was meeting Jimmy. I still quote his saying to me to this day "the sun always shines in Cromarty...You just can't see it for the clouds"

Futher addition to pic.758 part of a poem I wrote for JIMMY. I worked with JIMMY at the salmon fishing at EATHIE. A great character sadly missed GOD rest his soul.
