Scott Lindsay

I am sad to announce the death of my dear big brother Scott, age 78, who had been successfully fighting off cancer for several years, until very recently.  He passed away peacefully on Thursday evening, 30th December at his home in Chester with his close family present.  He is survived by his wife Isla and son Alasdair, granddaughters Kitty and Tess and their mother Tracey.

The funeral was held on 21st January in the Crematorium at Chester. His coffin was carried by four kilted nephews and covered by the White Ensign.

Scott at the helm

Scott was a former Chairman and a serving Trustee and Board Member of the Society.  He was a  Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Naval Reserves and had a great love for the sea.  He spent much of his spare time on his yacht with family and friends, who will always treasure these times they spent together with him.  He was never happier than when he was behind the wheel of his yacht in a brisk fresh wind sailing round the islands of the Hebrides.  Another great interest was in Celtic music, having learnt to play the pipes while at school in Edinburgh.  He was also Pipe-Major of the Edinburgh University Pipe band in 1965/66 and frequently played at the annual Clan Gatherings over the past thirty years.

He was a caring big brother to me from a very young age and I will greatly miss him, as will all his family and friends.
