The Invergordon Fire Brigade was the community group who worked with artist Anna Smith on the creation of this dramatic design.
It is almost impossible to put into words how important a part the 'Royal' played in the community and to the economy of the town. Local weddings were held there;tour buses stopped off overnight during the summer season.
The fire was probably the most traumatic in Invergordon's history and when the hotel was finally demolished it left a gaping hole at the very heart of the town. Invergordon has never fully recovered from its loss.
