Is that Munlochy bay in the b/ground?
Added by Gavin on 03 February 2013
I think it must be Munlochy Bay (in the left of the background) with Munlochy itself just visible nearer the telegraph pole - I can't think of anywhere else with that configuration of landscape. But there's a mounded bank with trees along it on the far end - was this something to do with the Mill Pond at Munlochy, now long gone?

It's Munlochy Bay and I think this pic was taken from the bridge over the railway at Gateside Farm which was demolished years ago. I can remember the mill pond in Munlochy - it was beside the mill. My father would take oats there to be ground into meal for pigs.

I think that this picture was taken from the bridge over the railway that gave access to Gateside farm. Farm and bridge are long gone. There was a spring in this cutting, on the Munlochy side of the bridge and on the farm side of the cutting, which produced lovely cold, clear water. I used to use this spring for a refreshing drink to have with my sandwiches at lunchtime. this was about 1947/8 when I was laying the water supply to Gateside, which was taken from Wester Suddie, now I beleive called Rockhill.

Wester Suddie has been known as Roskill for 50-odd years.

Sorry about the Rockhill misnomer, but the rest is all correct.I used to meet Jock Innes, surfaceman from Avoch, at this cutting. I was having a drink of the water and he was on his daily track inspection. Thirteen miles of it!
