"Corry Vanie", Strathpeffer

This photograph was taken outside "Corry Vanie", a large boarding house in Strathpeffer. Duncan Macpherson stayed there for several summers while working in the Spa Pharmacy. The boarding house was run by Mrs MacLennan from Kyle of Lochalsh, whose parents had owned the Kyle Hotel. Macpherson, in his book Where I Belong, tells of Mrs MacLennan speaking of her early days in Kyle. This, and the fact that his father was born in Glenelg, inspired Macpherson to head west, where he spent the rest of his working days. The people in this photograph are unidentified, possibly the lady seated is Mrs MacLennan
