The Laird 'Himself' Becomes Infeft of Glencairn
Laird Bryan Wills finally visits Glencairn
Adverse weather conditions on his visit from Canada in 2005 prevented Bryan Wills becoming infeft of his square foot of peat bog and heather in the Highlands [nothwithstanding a reconnaissance on his behalf as soon as the acquisition was made]. But it is a great pleasure to report that he is now infeft. He was most particular that he was photographed at the Camstone Cairn on such a fine day in his Canadian blouson and also pictured with the heathers, sheep and thistles so characteristic of his lands.
