Hi Liz, that's certainly Provost MacKay tucking in there on the left! He lived in the cul de sac at the end of Joss Street - I think Tomich Road?

I thought that Provost Mackay always lived on High Street in Kinloch House where his daughter, Gertrude, lives now.

Hi Bill, I always remember him on the High Street two doors from the Royal Hotel. It was like one house but two doors on to the street. They had a weather graph in the window and the only original granite slabs left on the high street in front of their door. Anna Macleod was nearest the Royal and Millie Macleod's mother on the other side.

Oh dear! I think for some reason I got this mixed up..it was the Drydens I was thinking of! Old age I'm afraid.

Catherine I agree with you, it was either next door to Donnie Macleod the painter or the next along, definitely the High Street. In fact he was sometimes called Johnny Kinloch ..after his house name.

Hi Bill, Provost Mackay and family did live in that cul-de-sac in Joss Street before they moved to High Street. They lived there when I was young! Many years ago!!!!

Bill - not old age entirely, the Drydens lived upstairs from the Mackays - we were 1 Tomich Road and I guess the Mackays were 2. Other families were the Beacoms, Buller and Mary Grant, the Scofields (Paddy) and Jean and Paul Grant at the top of the cul-de-sac. I'm sure there were others besides but perhaps old age is getting in the way! We moved to the High Street in about 1960, I think after the Mackays. I remember they were always very good to me, but I also remember getting bitten by one of their two cairn terriers - but they provided instant medical attention!

Thanks for the response Fraser, it's a relief to know that sometimes my brain does function correctly. I spent many many hours playing football with Munro Hill in Tomich Road. The Hills lived in the last house in Joss Street. I always fancied myself as a goalkeeper (ridiculous considering my lack of inches). My goal mouth was the fence at the top of Tomich Road and as the road was just gravel my knees still carry the scars from the many times I failed to prevent Munro from scoring!
