I can well remember Len Stewart - what a character! By the time I knew him, he was suffering a bit with arthritis. He used to warn me that I'd end up like him if I didn't avoid getting continuously soaked. How true! I was based at Inverinan between 1966 and 1970 with the late Don MacCaskill.

Think we lived next door to Len Stewart . We left Dalavich around 1954. Ray and Mary Jones were my parents.

Len was half brother to my father Robbie Fraser, head keeper on Ballogie Estate on Deeside
