The Will Ogilvie cairn is unveiled in August 1993.

The unveiling of a special commemorative cairn in honour of the local bard – who lived from 1869 to 1963 – was the culmination of 18 months of fundraising by local Ogilvie enthusiasts. Our photographs shows Will’s son, George Ogilvie, holding a new edition of Will’s poetry, memorial fund committee member Ian Landles and piper Craig Cowan from Annan, all at the new cairn.
