Gorgeous pitcher and I am sure it was frequently full too. :lol:

 

 By the time he was finished, Smee, it was not the loch he was seeing but the "B(e)aring" sea. :smile:

My grandmother ran the pub many years ago.

Do you know anything about the "Thumb in the matchbox" legend, of the Dores inn?

You had better, Smee, lest IHE thumb's his nose at you.

 

On the other hand, if you do tell him all you know,  he will give you the unique gesture for which he is notorious.. yes,........ it'''''''s

 

the thumbs-up,  quickly followed by  a Knees up Mother Brown in his Mackenzie kilt...... :clapoverhead:

Tell me more as my Granny had "lost" the thumb on herl left hand !!

Well...from what i recall, there wasnt much to tell really. I think there was a guy who frequented the pub, who carried around a box with him, allegedly containing someones thumb. i think it was a bit of an Urban Legend out that way and might even have been used to keep the locals in check. Thats how i interpreted the tale i was told

My grannys maiden name was Shaw and she married a Jack. My mother was born in Boath but moved to the Dores in when she was wee. I know that two of my aunts were born at the Inn.

They'll probably just lower the bank opposite and flood the other side :cry:
