The house with the ornamental holly trees (No.8) was, in fact, known as Holly Cottage before its present name of "Fulmar Cottage". Comparing this picture with No. 22, the trees are much more mature but actually they were no longer there in 1950, the date for this postcard. I am not sure when they were cut down. Family photos show they were there sometime during the war years but were certainly gone by 1949. My guess is that they were cut down after the death of my grandfather in 1942.

He was the first in Rosemarkie to have TV when the relay station opened at Learnie. He had to erect a very high mast for his aerial as the Craig blocked the signal. He used to invite his cronies in to watch TV in his workshop and we boys used to peer in the wee window at the corner - it cannot be seen in this photo.
