Mary Campbell (Munro)

I was born in Cromarty, in the Cottage Hospital. Having spent nearly all my school holidays with my granny, Bella Chapman, I have only fond memories. I still visit occasionally and am always surprised to see what changes there have been over the years. However, some things never change, and it is reassuring to see some of the old sights. These photographs allow a wonderful trip down memory lane!
