Ian MacDonald of Clachan and Lochgilphead

Many of those who study Kintyre history and genealogy will have received generous assistance from Ian MacDonald, recently living in Lochgilphead, and previously resident in Clachan. For the many people outside Kintyre - and outside Scotland - who have benefited from Ian's expertise, I'm copying below the sad news of his death, as announced in the Glasgow Herald.

I just heard about this earlier this month when we were in Kintyre. Sad to hear. I think everyone with any connexion to Kintyre knew who he was. Thanks for posting this obit.
