A former gamekeeper on a nearby estate, Murdo was a larger than life character and fondly remembered by many. Originally from Perthshire, he lived and worked locally near West Linton for several years. Murdo greatly enjoyed his work out on the hills as well as the craic back down in the village pubs.

One Sunday afternoon when I was busy doing some photographs for another project, Murdo knocked on the door (having had a dram or two) and eventually agreed to sit for a quick picture. He moved away and back home to Perthshire a few years ago and thence not long afterwards up to the great estate in the sky!

Murdo was good convivial company, enjoyed the occasional cigar and had a vast repertoire of very funny stories. Pleased to remember him here with this pic.
