Tain & District Museum Year: 1958Neil Forbes' garage fire
This garage was located near the foot of Scotsburn more or less opposite what is now Scotsburn Garden Centre. St Duthus Lodge can be seen in the right background. It all seems very casual. Given the existence of the petrol pumps, this could have been a very serious incident. Nowadays the area would probably be cordoned off and anyone in the vicinity evacuated.
