About this memory

John Watson.

“This is a photograph of my father’s brother, John Watson, at the cleugh in Auchendinny between Roslin. The family had a little cabin they used weekends/holidays. John moved to Australia with his family, but came back when my father died in 1987. He took me to the cleugh, which was great as the location was a mystery to me.

“John was also a Shakespearian actor before he was married. Unfortunately the last we heard about John was when he disappeared in the bush in Australia.” – Maureen Watson
