Photograph of the illuminated face of the hand wound clock made by J. Smith & Sons of Derby. The clock was presented to the Royal Dornoch Golf Club by Lord Brassey, a member living at Newton Point. It was installed in the new club house in 1909. It remained in use until the old club house was modernised and extended in 1973, when a new electric clock replaced it. The old clock lay in pieces until it was restored by Mr Robbie Bowie, a member and engineer. In 2005 when in good working order, it was installed in the entrance of Dornoch's Historylinks Museum. See images of main component parts at 2005_048_006_02, 03 and 04 and notes on the history and restoration of the clock are at 2005.048.005.
