Dr Struan Robertson on his 90th birthday

Colour photograph of Dr Struan Robertson taken on his 90th birthday 12th March 2010. Struan was a a Dornoch GP and a founding member of the Dornoch Heritage Society. With Jimmy Bell he surveyed archaeology sites in the Dornoch area, particularly the Evelix valley, and produced detailed finely drawn outlines of their findings.

In 2008 Dr Robertson and Dr Graham Park co-operated to produce a scientific account of the Evelix Valley. The 'Abandoned Buildings of the Evelix Valley, SE Sutherland - symptoms of the social and economic decline of a Highland Valley' by S J T Robertson and R G Park was launched at a Heritage Society meeting on 16 April 2009. The text is supported by drawings by Struan Robertson, plans with dimensions of sites, hut circles and buildings, panoramic views based on sketches by Struan Robertson, location maps and a selection of colour photographs showing the main sites and buildings in the valley.
