Sandy McLellan and his wife Nellie

Sandy McLellan and his wife, Nellie, taken in the back garden at 13 High St in 1972. We met this lovely kind couple when Sandy worked on the tug boats and my father, Captain Frederic Booth, was Harbour Master in Invergordon 1959-1964. We stayed at 15 High St 1961-1964.

Thanks Heather for this picture, I remember them both well. My grandfather Fachy Dunn always spoke highly of Sandy.

Harry - I'm not surprised your Grandfather, Fachy Dunn, spoke highly of Sandy - both he and his wife were certainly what you would call 'the salt of the earth' kind of people.

Heather, another great photo! I never knew their Christian names but they are so recognisable - they were just "Alistair's parents" to me.

Rosalie - I'm glad you liked the photo. They were a 'salt of the earth' kind of people. Although I did know their first names they were always 'Mr & Mrs McLellan' to me. As we stayed next door to them at one point, my most vivid memories are of Mr McLellan always working in his beautiful garden and Mrs McLellan always cooking and baking, and both of them feeding their bantams, pigeons and chinchillas. Their house and garden was such a welcome place for children, full of all sorts of 'exciting things'. Look out for one or two other nice pictures I have of them.
