Photo Description

Meikle Ferry Station building as seen from the front (ie facing away from the railway line). The name of the station reflected the site's importance for an earlier form of transport. This building became the Meikle Ferry Inn and more recently its name was changed to the Dornoch Bridge Inn. Again a reflection of changes in communications. See also Picture #202

    My mum, sister and brother-in-law now own the Dornoch Bridge Inn. It is a bit run down but on its way up.

    I remember when it was a family house, and then a restaurant. My friend lived at a railway cottage just up from where the left corner of the picture is.

    I am aware that a Arthur Combault Jennins was living here in 1891. He later lived at Carringtons Morangie Road Tain. I am researching the family with links to Milford on Sea Hampshire
