An interesting old lady, Mrs. MPherson, has died at Fairlie, at the advanced age of 98. She was Fairlies oldest inhabitant. Her great-grandfather was the principal piper to Prince Charles Edward Stuart, and he played the charge on the fatal Morning at Culloden. The pipes used on that occasion are still in the possession of the Duke of Atholl. Mrs. MPherson was brimful of stories of the romantic 45, and she was also fond of relating the exploits of the daring smugglers who were the terror of the Revenue officers in the Highlands early last century.
