Object of the Month
Each month we feature a different object from the museum's collections or exhibitions.
This month we are featuring another photograph from the museum's collection which links to our winter exhibition: James Fletcher of Rosehaugh
This photograph commemorates the opening by Fletcher (on the right of the flagpole) of the Rosehaugh, Avoch and Fortrose water works on the 27th May 1893.
Fletcher was a great benefactor to the Black Isle communities, especially Avoch. He paid for much needed sanitary improvements there and set up a woollen mill to provide employment for villagers. The Rosehaugh estate also employed many local people.
