Colin Campbell, 1923-2017
In memory our Dad, who loved trees and the Scots country.

Colin was born in Glasgow in 1923 and therefore comes from a very undemonstrative tribe. I’ll attempt to toot his horn without offending his sensibilities. Being a self-educated, working-class Scot, he was an aristotcrat and inhabited my youth with books and reasonableness. He was also a dab hand at camping and the arcane skills of fire-lighting with damp wood. A cheerful atheist, he would no doubt approve of this tree-planting endeavour. All things considered, he was pure dead brilliant.
