Immediately on the right-hand side of the Auctioneer (left as you look at photo) is John Mann and alongside him is Andy Rose, my uncle, who worked on Inverbreakie Farm, with Sandy Fraser, Greive, who was his father-in-law and my grandfather. Andy was married to Cathie Rose (nee Fraser) Sandy Fraser's daughter. Andy worked at Dalmore Distillery after the sale of Inverbreakie Farm and lived at Salvasen Crescent, Alness. Andy and Cathie is survived by their son Alex who lives at Burnside, Alness.

Thank you for the information, John. It's always really helpful to put names to faces. It must have been quite a sad occasion.
