Ladies Highland Lunch 2018

l to r: Alison Taylor, Club President Stella Reynolds, Professor Dame Sue Black and Prue Watson (SN President)

After a delicious lunch everyone sat in awe as we listened to our speaker Professor Dame Sue Black talk about her work as a forensic anthropologist Where her expertise has been crucial in such war torn places as Kosovo where she headed the British Forensic Team’s exhumation of mass graves, finding evidence to assist with the conviction of Scotland’s largest paedophile ring and more recently nearer to home in the investigation of a headless corpse in Wardlaw Mausoleum in Kirkhill which had erroneously been believed to be the corpse of Simon Fraser 11th Lord Lovat and which in fact turned out to be the corpse of a woman. Professor Sue also gave us an insight into new methods of human identification that are being developed.

We would like to thank Dalmore Distillery, Glenmorangie Distillery, Kincraig Castle Hotel, Tain Pottery, Diane Priday and members of SI Easter Ross for donating prizes for our raffle which raised £470.00  with £200.00  going to Ross-Shire Women’s Aid and the remainder to Women for Women International.
