Rob out and about

Here, Housing Minister Stewart Maxwell MSP met SNP Cllr Maxine Smith and myself to discuss regeneration projects in Invergordon.

One recent project is a series of murals with the latest to appear at the Invergordon Rail Station. Here on the arch is a commemoration of the surrender of the 51st Highland Division in 1940 at St Valery in Normandy. Many of the Seaforth Highlanders came from the Easter Ross area and all across the North. They often left for service by rail from this very station.

Here, Marie McGill CEO Highland Hospice and I were able to discuss an upcoming Parliament reception for the organisation on 28th October. We discussed the Audit Scotland review of palliative care services in which services in the Highlands gained high praise.

Below is a photo of Invergordon Station exemplifying the necessity of my campaign for disabled access from the northbound platform to the southbound with access provided by a ramp from the road bridge that links each side.
