Statement of Interest

Committee for promoting hospital scheme first met October 1891, and a site was gifted by the Earl of Cromartie. In 1894, the committee was offered $1,000 from Miss Morison Duncan, on behalf of her mother, Mrs Morison Duncan of Naughton House, Fife, if the hospital was named after her uncle, Dr Nicolson MacKenzie, a native of Strathpeffer, who was drowned at sea.
