Neil Macpherson, the son of Kyle Chemist and photographer Duncan Macpherson, is seen here second from the right in the back row. The photograph was probably taken at Plockton Higher Grade School where Neil and his elder sister Mary completed their secondary education. Faint marks on the faces of the children indicate that the photograph has been "doodled" over at some point, the fate of many class photos. The teacher may be keeping an eye on things from the window behind.

From a young age, Neil appeared in many of his father's photographs, as he often accompanied him on walking or cycling excursions in the area. Neil was born in 1919 and brought up in Kyle of Lochalsh, but was tragically killed at just 24 years of age in 1944 as the result of an accident while serving in the 16th Army Ordnance Depot in Kent.
