Inverness Field Club excursion

This photograph is believed to show members of the Inverness Field Club on one of their excursions. One such excursion, on 10 June 1899, was to Balnagown, and it has been suggested that one of the men seen here, back row, forth from the left, may be Sir Charles Ross, laird of Balnagown. Volume five of the Club's transactions describes the excursion, which took place in brilliant sunshine. The party was led by the Club's president, W. J. Watson, and they were met at Kildary Station by the Rev. J. Munro, minister of Logie-Easter, and by Mr W. Urquhart, the manager of Balnagown. Bowler hats were popular headgear for managers and businessmen, so it may be that the man second from the right in the back row was the estate manager
