Cromarty Image Library

Garve Scott-Lodge

I have lived in Cromarty since I was 5 years old - moved here in 1967 - and now work for Plexus Media in the town.

I wrote the programme which runs this system. The collection of photos in this album is likely to be pretty random, as I keep an eye on ones which are of interest in terms of how the system is working. If you have any comments about the system feel free to email me.

To see pictures taken by me, select my name from the Contributors list at the top of the page.
