One Response to Dores

  • I would be very interested in the names of the three people standing on the path outside The Dores Inn, and if you know approx. the year the photo was taken?

    My great grandparents, John MacKenzie and his wife Christina Murdie, lived there from about 1881. Their nine children were all born there, the youngest in 1895.
