This group photo is taken at the entrance to the old Town Hall in Tower Street (later used as a cinema and currently awaiting renovation) following the Freedom of the Burgh Presentations to Sir Arthur Bignold, MP, and Colonel James Alex. Francis Humberston Stewart Mackenzie of Seaforth in 1907. Sir Arthur is probably the white bearded gentleman at the front with Lady Bignold beside him. Colonel Mackenzie could be the gentleman in spats leaning against the balustrade. Also in the picture are various councillors, baillies and other dignatories (including the Countess-Dowager of Moray and Sir Kenneth Matheson, Bart. of Lochalsh) and leading businessmen. A cake and wine banquet took place afterwards in the Royal Hotel.
