This is the redevelopment of the site that used to be occupied by the Cromlet Club in Cromlet Drive.

Cromlet Club - was that the old RN Officers' Clubhouse?

Bill. The development looks to be in the old school garden, and part of the club grounds. Was originally the officers club, then the golf club till this was moved elsewhere.

Since being a garden in the 1950s, this site has seen a few changes.
The Invergordon Golf Club occupied a new building on the site after leaving their old premises, the old Naval Officers Club situated between 'The Craigs' and the Church of Scotland manse on Cromlet Drive. The old Naval Officers Club was then demolished and a new residential property now named 'Lismore' was built on the site. After some years the Invergordon Golf Club moved to newly built premises with social and catering facilities at the end of King George Street on the golf course. Their Cromlet Drive premises were taken over by the Cromlet Social Club and later by Nu-Start. After Nu-Start moved on the premises were demolished and construction commenced on the building featured in the above photograph. The wall showing bottom right in the photograph is in front of 'The Craigs'.

Thanks Ron for the potted history. My dad used to take me into the Officers Club now & again and we would play on the full size snooker tables there. Sorry its gone..most of Invergordons past seems to have gone or about to go.

Ron, do you still live in Invergordon? I think we should make you the official historian for the site.

So I guess that is the old primary school to the left? It had extensive gardens to the side and rear and were used to teach gardening to the boys from the secondary school over the railway. How many schools offer such useful learning today?
