Patrons of Crieff Highland Gathering
The Crieff Highland Gathering honors individuals who have provided significant services to the Crieff Gathering over a number of years. We have a number of former Directors of Crieff Highland Gathering Ltd. Honored for their years of service. We also have a Honorary Patron position given for non Directors who have made a significant contribution
Brigadier Melville S Jameson CBE accepted our offer of Honorary Patronage during 2015. Appointed by The Queen in 2006, Brigadier Melville S Jameson CBE is the Lord Lieutenant of Perth and Kinross and is the representative of the crown in Perth and Kinross. The Lord Lieutenant's role is, like the Monarch's, essentially non-political and seeks to promote a spirit of co-operation by encouragement of the voluntary services and benevolent organisations, and by taking an active interest in the business, industrial and social life of the area. He has been a supporter of the highland gatherings in Perthshire, and was the Crieff Gathering Chieftain in 2012. He also organised the royal visit to Strathearn in 2013, and supported the efforts of the Crieff Gathering in their approach to HRH Prince William for his Patronage.
The following former Directors have provided significant service in the past and enabled the Gathering to develop into one of Scotland best and most important gatherings. They are:
G T Donaldson; R F Donaldson ; F Duncan ; D Hood ; J C S McGregor ; D S McLaren ; M Mihanlic ; R J Miller ; P Palmer ; F D Thomson ; P A Turek
