    having just seen this picture and due to the recent remodelling of the rose gardens I would be very interested to know if the sundial was going to be relocated in the new garden, if not where will it be moved to?

    Unfortunately the sundial disappeared long ago. We would be grateful if anyone can enlighten us as to what happened to it and when. There is currently a display in the museum on the history of the Rose Garden and also an article in the April edition of the Tain & Dornoch Picture Post.
