Charles Robertson, an Inverness resident also known as 'Dandy Charles'

Charles Lamont Robertson, an Inverness resident also known as 'Dandy Charles'. His nickname stemmed from his immaculate dress sense. He was often seen in various shops around the town i.e. 'Slorah' the grocer and tobacconist, and 'Tait' the barber, both of which were in Church Street. He was renowned for keeping a record of all the births and marriages in the parish and he was very fond of passing on gossip. He had no profession but still managed to appear in immaculate suits, whatever the season. He was best known for his outfit of white waistcoat and trousers, light-coloured gloves and light umbrella
