Shearing at Dalcrombie in 1899. The two adults in the centre are Alexander Johnston and his wife Christina Nairn, with their young family around them. The Johnston family still farm Achnabat and Dalcronbie. The incongruous figure on the left is G.F. Watts, famous English portrait artist of the 19th century, who married Mary Fraser-Tytler of Aldourie. Photograph courtesy of Iain Cameron.
