I've recently had my late Mother Margaret Scott (nee Ritchie) and Jane Patience (nee Mackay) Cromarty Song lyrics put to print.

These postcards are available in the Courthouse with 10p going to the Highland Hospice, my Mums favoured charity.

The ladies wrote the lyrics in 1966 when they were working together in the summer pre departing Cromarty to attend University. They were romantically pining for Cromarty already, so sung these lyrics to the tune of "These are my Mountains" in order to not miss home.

Most poignant.
On a trip with my mother and aunt with the “Fourways” club, the people on the bus sang it for me, and some people sang it for John Macdonald in the Victoria Hall when he performed a few years ago. Since John lives in Australia and I live in Canada you can imagine what it meant to us.
