Those in the photograph in front of the Royal Hotel (pre long verandah) are L to R: The Duke of Montrose, George Ross, (late Laird's father)
next lady not known, then Lady Ross, Miss Macfee(Namer of Lifeboat), and finally Hector? Munro of Foulis. I'll cross check this with Naming Ceremony leaflet issued at the time, which is with Plexusmedia at present.
