My granduncle Alexander Bain and his wife Williamina Miller are buried in Fodderty Burial Ground, Section B, Plot 672a. He was cemetary keeper there and lived at Rose Cottage, Fodderty; but on a visit to Strathpeffer no one could tell me where Rose Cottage was. He died 1st September 1953 and Williamina in November1943.

Jean, there is a Rose Cottage in Strathpeffer itself - follow the road opposite the main shop up the hill to Ardival & it is right in front of you. But my husband has a vague memory of cottages on the road turning left on the main road from Strathpeffer to Dingwall just past the old Fodderty School & thought there could have been a Rose Cottage there. That would make it even nearer to the cemetery.

Thankyou to whoever posted the Head stone for Mary McLennan and husband Roderick Bain, my 3 times great grandparents from Murdoch Bain. I recently went to Scotland and stayed a Tulloch Castle in Dingwall. Through the posted photo I was able to find the grave site at the Fodderty Cemetary. How amazing this was. One curiosity is that in the 1841 Census the family are listed as living at Dochmalaug where Roderick was employed as a gardener. However on the stone is is written that he was a gardener of Dochpollo. I did find some information on Dochmalaug, however nothing of the other. If anyone has any information I would love to know.

Interested to find information on the Rose family from Redbank, Heights of Keppoch, Fodderty as well as any information on Kenneth and Mary McLennan from the Heights of Dochearty, Fodderty.
I am a descendant of John Rose (1802-1878) and Janet Cameron (1811-??) from their son Alexander who migrated to NZ. He married a Fodderty girl over here in NZ by the name of Mary McLennan, daughter of Kenneth and Mary McLennan.
