The gallery was also in Cullen. Is now an antiques shop.

I knew the Perritts and their hotel quite well.

The hotel is the Bayview Hotel http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3532413. In the Perritts' day it had an excellent reputation and the restaurant was very popular.

The shop/gallery was a little further up the street, on the same side and above the railway viaduct. I think it's this one http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/2993846 but it might have been the one next door to the left.

This is a picture of Victor James tablet and one of my favorite elusive Peter's designs The Blitz, that I have been trying to get a piece off and on for years.

Talking of small world & coincidences I saw the name Perritt & as I have been searching my husband's Pettit(t)s thought I'd take a look at this thread.
Nothing to do with the name but we were some of the last guests to stay at the Bayview, for a Scottish country dancing weekend in Buckie.  The Danish owner was returning home & told us that it was to become a private house, it must have wonderful views from the room at the top!

Oddly enough, I actually stayed there for the first and only time almost exactly a year ago, to avoid the alcohol and driving issue on a special occasion.

Hi
Peter and Yvonne are hale and hearty and living in Malaga. They have been there for 16 years. They have very fond memories of Cullen.

Forgot to say that Victor was dad and Robbies older brother not their cousin.
