    I had forgotten exactly how it looked. I was there when it was Munroes and the pumps were there. Us aprents used to do one night a week and every firth weekend overtime on the petrol pumps. I started in 1966.

    As noted, it later became Fox & MacLean's Garage. Ted Fox was my grandfather who came to Scotland from Herefordshire as a chauffeur and married into the well-known family of Frasers who were noted stone-masons in Tain, building, amongst many other landmarks, the Sheriff Courthouse and the Royal Hotel.

    My Grandfather Harry Walker was a partner with Leonard Walker (his cousin) in the early 1900s. He also went on to garages in Grantown-on-Spey, Keith and Elgin. His father William Walker was a Coachbuilder in Fyvie and moved to Tain .
