A village policeman who spent more than thirty years supporting his local highland games is to be honoured with a new trophy bearing his name.
The Roderick Macleod Memorial Cup will be awarded at next month's Luss (Loch Lomond) Highland Gathering, the event of which he was Secretary, President and then Honorary President.
Born in Braes on the Isle of Skye, Mr Macleod first came to Luss as Village Policeman in 1949. The same year he joined the Games Committee in the pivotal role of Secretary. In 1974 he was elected Games President, a post he held until his retiral in 1985. He was then Honorary President for a number of years. The native Gaelic speaker was a passionate advocate of Highland culture, and also served as President of the Clydebank and District Highland Association for 25 years.
One of Scotland's oldest highland games got a 'reel' boost after more than £1200 was raised at a pre-games ceilidh.
The Luss community turned out in force last month for the Luss (Loch Lomond) Highland Gathering Ceilidh, held for the first time at the village's award-winning Loch Lomond Arms Hotel. More than 80 took part in the celebratory, fund-raising evening which saw Games Treasurer Stuart McKeown and his Ceilidh Band entertain the crowd with sets of traditional – and not so traditional – tunes, taking many of the revellers back to the days of the Highlanders Institute in Glasgow.
