Is Fraser in the back row a definite identification? My aunt thinks it may be her brother-in-law Peter Taylor, who lived in Bayview Crescent.

You are right, Catherine. I remember Peter now that you have mentioned his name. I was unsure of a couple of players. Hope the others are right. If not, let me know.

Would suggest that the Referee is Colin Murray (no relation) who hailed from Evanton although a bit hazy it looks very like him.
Added by Duncan Murray on 23 April 2008
I would agree. He used to work part-time with my Father David Bremner (Native of Cromarty) in the Novar Arms Bar in Evanton in the late fifties/early sixties. Colin's day job was as an insurance agent.

Is Tarzan Donnie Macfarlane from Rosemarkie?
Added by John Mackenzie on 31 August 2017
Yes to the Tarzan question and the front row Mcleman is Wee Hughie my brother Peter Gilmour's best friend.
