Betty Jessiman - Nairn Games female trail blazer

"When Miss Jessiman spotted a poster for the Nairn Highland Games, which omitted to state the dancing competition was “males only”, she seized her chance and posted in her entry. A special committee was convened to consider her application and it was decided to let her take part."

Thanks to Jason Rose for pointing us in the direction of Betty Jessiman's obituary.
