Gregor Wood

The Burns Supper is an institution of Scottish life: a night to celebrate the life and works of the national Bard and all things Scottish. Ours is an indulgent affair with fine old Malt Whisky, fine Wine, our proven Scottish dishes, Poetry by our "foolhardy chairman" and our Eastern Shore Piper.

Our "foolhardy chairman" Colin Carr of the past three years is taking time off to finish some historic literary works. We thank him for his wonderful representation of Burns and his works, much appreciated and enjoyed. So who would this Quaich be passed to, hard acts to follow indeed. We scowered the countryside from Benbecula to Melrose and found an excellent candidate  .  .  .  at The Lake of Mentieth, Mr Gregor Wood.

Growing up at Ledard, near The Lake of Mentieth in a farming background Gregor was also a former Royal Military Policeman and served with the armed forces overseas for six years.

He is recognized as one of the finest presenters of Burns poetry and is an expert on Rob Roy and the weapons of the Highland Clans with experience as a re-enactor. He also has extensive experience as an actor and compere. Gregor has a love of Scottish music and plays the Great Highland and Scottish Small Bagpipes.

You can see more of Gregor and his Father at their family Farm Ledard. Gregor's father Fergus plays every Hogmanay at Ian's Lake of Mentieth Hotel.

We are most fortunate to again have piper Randy Welsh who is also involved in The St Andrews Society of The Eastern Shore.
