Dear catriona, yes it was me and my wife kathleen, you saw on the denny in April .i knew you saw a donnie robertson, from the past. There is however another donnie on the go, 28 years old, my youngest child, of three .five grandchildren, all lovely .three boys, two girls. I rember you well, but more so john who was a great influence on my life .is it not strange how some people have that natural ability. There was one man here in ellon, who did the same.i hope that I have managed to the same .for my family, and other colleagues? I woorked as a medical rep for almost 30 years, before returning to my natural calling as an rgn. Ie registerd general nurse, which I am now pursuing again. I always wantered to be a dr.

I'm looking for information on Catriona Gillies for research into the Ross-shire SWRI Federation History. I can find most of her siblings but nothing for a Catriona. was her name really Catherine Jessie Gillies?

Catriona was my great aunt. Although she was registered as Catherine Jessie Gillies at birth, we only knew her as Catriona. The reason may be that her parents were from Skye and spoke gaelic at home. My mother was named Catriona after her auntie.
