    This house was in Invergordon. Behind the house would lie the north east end of Clyde Street. To the right of the house is the old 'Bone Mill' and the Attic Window visible behind the 'rusty roof' is on a south facing house on the High Street, possibly the first house on the high street after the Royal Hotel. I must go into Invergordon soon and check it out. If I'm right the house no longer stands and is now the site for the Natal Garden.

    This is definatley Invergordon and is either the house now occupied by Mr & Mrs Forsyth (beside the carpark at the rear of Albyn Housing) or the one that was demolished where the Natal Garden is located, not quite sure which!!

    David is correct re this house Jillian, the house occupied by Willie Forsythe and Maude is behind on Clyde St. Wasn't this the Andrews family home?

    It was Ness Cottage, on Clyde Street in Invergordon. Harry is right, it was the Andrews family home for very many years until our grandad Jim Andrews died and the house was eventually demolished for the Natal garden. It was a lovely, happy house, and the family were very sorry to see it go. Word has it that it was the original Customs house.
