Dear Doig Cousins,
Heartfelt thanks to all who attended our First World Gathering in Stirling, especially all the cousins who gladly traveled from distant shores back to the homeland in Scotland. We were delighted to have Ken with us, the Doig who has compiled all the fantastic family research almost all single handed.
“The Smith” proved a superb venue and director Elspeth King and her staff were all outstanding, nothing was too much trouble for them. The guest speakers were all very interesting. The highlight for me being David Ross who was the nearest thing to our national hero Wallace you could ever see. Ken’s highlight, Susan Beckley, from Stirling archives who found the missing Doig family papers. He actually asked if he could give her a hug! he was so excited. The civic welcome awarded to us by the Provost on behalf of Stirling Council was much appreciated and also the complementary lunch.
The “Doig Doo” on the Saturday evening in Thornhill, definitely one to remember. Next time we will, I’m sure, be able to rely on our own Doig cousins to provide the musical entertainment. Perhaps Willie will even give us a discount.
The sun shone on Doune Castle on the Sunday morning, probably arranged for us by Walter, Keeper of The Castle in 1463. Maybe Piper John wakened him up.
I hope that you all agree that the weekend was a great success and I personally look forward to our next Gathering in 2006. Please do your utmost to encourage other Doig cousins to come and join us.
Please keep in touch.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Guid New Year.
