This post card shows a stranding of a school of whales off Bonar bridge in October, 1927. The bridge shown here replaced the one built in 1811/12 - see picture #41 Old Bonar Bridge.

I have an original of this photo, or very similar.
I am interested to know if you have more old photo of Bonar in the museum. If so I will visit next time I am home.

I am very interested in Bonar as my family originated from a small croft in Migdale. I have photos of the croft now derelict . The photo of the 1st world war soldier was a man called Alexander Mackenzie and his family, one wee boy being my Granddad, William from Migdale. I would love any feed back. Tom Mackenzie, Jim Mackenzie were also popular figures in Bonar. They had shops and Jim drove the school bus. It is a shell beside the ruined croft.
I would love to see photos of the community and place during the last century. I have photos I would like to send you. I have a rent book from the croft late 17th century which I saved on one of my visits. The ruin was exposed to the elements and we saved it.
