Does anyone remember this little fella, and the connection with Invergordon?

MacPuff was the mascot of the campaign to oppose the cuts to the Highland Railway proposed by the infamous Beeching report of 1963.

Was it designed by art teacher Donald Shearer? Think there may have been a campaign office on the High Street opposite the Town House.

Correct, it was designed by art teacher Dolan Shearer.

The campaign group was titled The Highland Vigilantes and had their office in the shop within the Rhua Hotel building. Phil Durham was a leading light in the Group.

At the age of 14 I remember this. I used to babysit for Mr. Shearer and his lovely wife. I was terrified at the thought of Invergordon Station getting closed and if my Dad had to go into Raigmore it would takes hours on the Bus. I would be sick going and sick coming back. I was so happy when it stayed open. I remember Macpuff very well indeed.

My father and I did a lot of work in Dolan and Doris house, and as far as I know they did not have a family.
