Looks like the late Tain councillor Harry Miller partly hidden by the umbrella. Comment left on 29 April 2005 at 19:38 by Estelle Quick
This is a great picture of Skip and Margaret many years ago when Skip and his lovely wife were alive I used to get up at 6 in the morning and go for a walk with Skip to gather kindlings for the fire and when we returned Jess his wife would have a lovely breakfast for Skip and me and she had the fire going it was lovely and i have lovely memories off them both and they are sadly missed by all as they were a lovely couple.

The lass at the top off the steps IS Elspeth MacKay now Shaw isn't Louise lovely, Elspeth's sister Wilma was my Bridesmaid at my wedding in 1974 Margaret has my wedding on video. I have many fond memories of Skip and Jess I took Skip out in his chair a few times we ended up in The Royal Hotel for a wee dram on the way home. I'd get hell from Margaret as Skip had one too many we always made up those were the days I wish they were still here unfortunately we can't turn the clock back. I will treasure the memories till I die. Comment left on 05 May 2008 at 17:13 by Dorothy Shepherd
