    The attached photo - from sometime between 1872 and 1892 - is in the possession of Canadian descendants of Margaret Harper (1823-1873), daughter of David Harper (1799-1846) of Bilbster & Barbara Robertson (1790-1866), of Greenland, Dunnet. It's thought to be of Harper relatives back home. Maybe related to your Harpers. Or may be Robertsons.

    Hi Alistair,
    Because I live in Newton Hill I came across this photo of John Harper who crofted on the Hill probably sometime in the first one third of the 1900's. Someone has written "Andrews twin brother above the photo"
    I will pm you with some more details
