Family History Beginners Board / Stuart Fordyce connection

My husband's grandfather Francis Donald Stuart 1877-1961 was born at the Golden Lion Hotel in Stirling to  the proprietor Robert Stuart 1834 - and Ann Elizabeth Watt 1835-1950.  The 1891 census has the Ann Elizabeth, widow, in Lincoln running the Great Northern Hotel.  Can anyone tell me how to find out when this family left Stirling and The Golden Lion?
Question 2.  Robert Stuart 1834 had a sister called Jessie Fordyce Stuart 1826-1881.  Jessie F Stuart married David Hall in Glasgow 1848 had issue 1850 but was then widowed sometime between 1850 and 1857 when she marries in Australia.  Can anyone tell me why the Fordyce in her name?  My husband's DNA is linked to this lady on Ancestry.
Question 3.  We have inherited an undated (probably 19C) oil painting which has a label on the back "Robert Alexander Stuart - Gentleman - Raigmore".  The Stewart/Stuart Society tell me the Mcintoshs lived at Raigmore.  Can anyone tell me how I can find out who this gentleman was?    :)  :)
Thank you
