A view looking down Castle Avenue towards the town centre.

A wonderful picture Pat! Is Castle Avenue the same as Castle Road or is it somewhere different? It would be great if someone local produced a modern day comprehensive portfolio of the town so that ex-pats who are far away can see what things look like nowadays. I guess the picture has been taken very recently as you probably have had quite a bit of snow this winter. In London it has been cold but no snow.

Yes, it's a superb picture; if you select the larger version, you almost feel you are standing there, in the middle of the road in the freezing cold!
Castle Road becomes Castle Avenue at the cross-roads with Academy Road and Cromlet Drive, just over the railway bridge. The partner site - www.invergordon.info - has maps of the town under the 'Finding Invergordon' section.
The latest aerial views of the town, taken in 2003 by The Highland Council give a pretty good impression of how things are now, although it would be a good idea to build up a section on how things are now at ground level for future reference.

Slightly puzzled with this view - I thought Castle Road crossed over the railway bridge. In this view there appears to be buildings right across the road.

You're spot on with Castle Road, Douglas. The Church is hidden behind the trees to the left of the car. The road curves to the right just as it passes the Church and heads towards the cross-roads with the High Street. The buildings you can see are first: the front of the two houses (semi-detached in one building) which are between the church car park and Joss Street, then the back of the properties in the High Street. Take a look at the aerial picture #662 - the larger version; this will probably help.

Hi Pat, best picture on this web site! Don’t know if you’ll remember me - I worked at Mac ferries at the same time as you when you took the petrol landing craft up from England. I live in Las Palmas at the moment but I can’t wait to be back to the snow again. Keep the winter photos coming. Cheers.
