Shona Macleod [2nd from the top right] is my adopted mother. She is retired from teaching math at Tain Royal and currently lives at the Grove just off Tain high street.

Could the lassie third from the left in the front row be Mabel Robertson? Of the group above some have scattered, but Lisbeth, Jessie, Jean, Mabel and I may still be seen on Tain High St any day of the week ! And yes, I am proud to say that I am indeed Alasdair's adoptive mother.Bless him and his lovely American wife Tamra.

My cousin e-mailed me the photo this week and asked me if I recognized anyone in it. Actually I remembered everyone's name except the one next to Helen Macgregor. I think her name might have been Alison. She was one of the younger ones. The one next to Cissie is Bertha Ross I think and the girl next to Anne Graham on the end is Ishbel Ross. Would love to hear from any of you if you feel like e-mailing me. I have been in Canada since the 50's but I remember the group like it was yesterday. It was a great place to grow up and I still visit often. By the way Bharrie should be Mhairi

I am searching for Macgregor ancestors and came across this photo of Helen Macgregor. Can anyone please give me more details about her? My Macgregors originated from Barvas, Stornoway but my grandfather, Ian Macgregor had a sister Helen. I'm from the Philippines.
