Formerly mislabelled as Alford to Muir of Fowlis Road.

Are you sure this is not the Alford to Aberdeen road? Looks like Forbes castle in the distant background.

Not sure where Muir Of Fowlis comes in to it.

Thanks Big Nick. As someone else pointed out, these postcards were often mislabelled. What I'm not sure of, however, is the large building to the right. It looks like a school and so I'm not sure that there is an equivalent building on the Alford to Whitehouse stretch of the A944. Could someone else have a look at this photograph and give an opinion please?

Most of the house is still there. You can see the front of the house as you drive towards Aberdeen (just after the turn off to the Stewart Milne houses). I do not know why the side of the house is no longer there.

The house is owned now by Mr Sid C. I suspect he did not live there when the picture was taken.

Ah, I know the one you mean Big Nick and I've often thought it looked like a school.
