The Skirmisher

No 13 - 1991

The Bulletin of the Scrimgeour Clan Association


The cover sketch is based on the costume doll, 16 inches high, which was presented to our Association some twenty years ago by Mrs Sinclair of Winnipeg. It was pronounced to be... "an extremely accurate and probable likeness..." of the 13th century Standard Bearer by no less an authority than the late Sir Iain Moncrieff of that Ilk, the then Albany Herald. Our Skirmisher stands now proudly on the Birkhill mantlepiece but may "return" one day to Dudhope Castle.
