Holiday in Stathpeffer

In those halcyon before Covid, we had a holiday in Strathpeffer.      We even had a lesson in how to pronounce the name, as our pronunciation would be spelt with pp instead of ff.   In the old station area there were some huge carvings that I would like to share with you.   They were made by Alistair Brebner who had his wood carving on the old station platform where he carved the  Evolution Pillar.  His work can still be seen in a number of locations in the Raigmore hospital in Inverness.
