How best to contact me

Please phone me or email me (details above).

Should you want to speak to me directly call past my home at Keldabrae - best to phone first to ensure you find me in.

Personal Profile

I was born on the croft of South Horraldsay in the Parish of Firth where I still live. Married to Linda, we have three of a family John, Olga, and Anne, and one grandson Ewen.

I have spent most of my life working in the building industry alongside, for many years, working the family croft. I also did a bit of creel fishing in the early 70s as a hobby.

Committee Membership

Outside interests

Music has played a huge part in my life, playing in various groups and dance bands over the years.
About thirty years ago I set up a recording studio and started my own record label (Attic Records) which is still busy today recording and releasing albums by Orkney's many talented musicians and singers.

I am a member of the Folk Band 'Hullion' which has ,for many years entertained both local and visiting audiences at concerts and functions throughout Orkney and beyond. On Saturday evenings I enjoy nothing better than to go along to the regular 'Session at The Reel' in Kirkwall.  I have always loved boating and spend quite a bit of my leisure time in the boat.

Find me

At home of an evening, or in my boat on a bonny night, and on Saturday night you would most likely find me in 'The Reel' having a tune.
