Christine M.(Bunty) MacLellan

arisaigWe are sad to report on the passing of Bunty who died peacefully on Monday morning.

She was born in Torbreck, Rogart on 11th July 1923 and in 1943 she met John MacLellan, then the youngest Pipe Major in the British Army, at a garden fete in the grounds of the Invershin Hotel. The rest, as they say, is history.

When Captain John MacLellan was posted to Edinburgh Bunty formed part of quite a formidable ‘piping wives group’ including Margaret Stoddart, Anne Anderson, Flora Cameron and Jean MacLennan and there is no doubt they added great colour to the piping scene at that time.

Our sympathies and condolences go to Colin, Kirsteen and family.

The funeral service will take place at Warriston Crematorium, Cloister Chapel, Edinburgh on Monday, July 7th, 2014 at 1.30pm to which friends and family are warmly invited, and afterwards at the family home at 14 Dean Park Crescent, Edinburgh, EH4 1PH.
