Margaret Mackay; Katie Ann Mackinnon; Alexander Matheson; and Donald Martin at Amity House

 

Lord-Lieutenant of the Western Isles, Alexander Matheson, welcomed three new members to the isles' Lieutenancy today, Friday, 19th February.
Mr Matheson was delighted to commission Katie Ann Mackinnon, from Stockinish, Harris; and Alasdair MacEachen, South Uist, as new Deputy-Lieutenants of the Western Isles following approval granted by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.


Unfortunately, because of bad weather and ferry cancellations, Mr MacEachen was unable to attend the commission ceremony held at Amity House, Stornoway.


Margaret Mackay, from Ness, was also welcomed as the new Clerk to the Lieutenancy, who will be taking over the role from Donald Martin, currently Vice-Lieutenant.


Prior to Mr Martin's clerkship, the post was held by the late Simon Fraser, formerly of Anderson Macarthur Solicitors; where Margaret works presently as a lawyer.
