Pinkie Hits Seventy

Alaisdair 'Pinkie' Cameron was seventy yesterday.

Never let it be said that this community can't keep a secret.  For weeks, everyone has known that Alaisdair's brother, Ian, and his family were organising a lunch party at the Community Centre to celebrate Pinkie's birthday, but he didn't know anything about it until he came through the door - picture shows the moment of realisation.

Proceedings started with a warm but humorous tribute from nephew John MacCallum, much of which centred on his uncles' enjoyment of a dram or two.....

....a speech which was greatly enjoyed by the crowd of some eighty who had come, not only from West Ardnamurchan but from much further afield.  A second appreciation was given by neighbour Tom Bryson, who works closely with Pinkie as they hold adjoining crofts.

Guests were then treated to an excellent buffet meal which included a helping of birthday cake.

Many thanks indeed to the MacCallum family for their warm hospitality, and best wishes to Alaisdair for the next seventy.
