Andrew Bathie

My link with Cromarty is via my father who was born there and many happy memories of childhood holidays there. I have also traced my family tree back 250 years or so and have found distant relatives across the globe. Anybody with links back to the old Fishertown is no doubt related particularly anybody with the family name Hossack, Mcleman, Watson, Finlayson, Hogg or Skinner. Andrew_Bathie@hotmail.co.uk
