‘Highland Games at Tomintoul’

Black and white postcard of Tomintoul Highland Games held in the Square. (After 1921 the Tomintoul Games moved to the Games field.) The large building on the left is the Richmond Arms Hotel. The building opposite has not yet been remodelled with its distinctive clock tower, now the Clock House Restaurant. Note, lower right, two wee bairns watching the Highland dancing, in their best white, Sunday clothes. Date of postcard not known, but before 1908. (unknown collection)
