Photograph Library

Over the years we have been very fortunate to have been given access to many historic photographs and permission to display them on the website.  We have now collated them into different albums.  We hope you enjoy viewing in them. 

Welcome to this collection of photographs from Nigg Parish. The bulk of these photograph have been provided by Mrs Liz  Whiteford, who also has the originals. The photographs were presented in three albums on the original RCHS website, but as the topics are similar in each album it has been decided to amalgamate them under the headings formerly listed.

The photos in this album are from the Ross-shire Journal during the 1914-1918 War. Newspaper copies had been deposited with Dingwall Museum but over the years had become rather fragile and were in danger of disintegrating and so it was felt that this valuable record should not be lost.
