A state­ment is­sued by Ar­ran Med­i­cal Group read: ‘It is with deep sad­ness that we ad­vise that our long­stand­ing col­league Dr An­gus Camp­bell died on Wed­nes­day.

‘An­gus was an ex­cep­tion­ally trusted, ex­pe­ri­enced, kind and com­pas­sion­ate man whose door was al­ways open for ad­vice, coun­sel or laugh­ter. We will miss him ter­ri­bly. Our thoughts are with Yolly and An­gus’s fam­ily at this time.’

Dr Camp­bell, who re­tired in De­cem­ber last year af­ter 36 years as a GP, first moved to Ar­ran with Yolly and his fam­ily in 1981.

Orig­i­nally from Carlisle, he was an equally fa­mil­iar face in the sail­ing com­mu­nity and also played a long-serv­ing role in the Ar­ran RNLI and helped es­tab­lished the Ar­ran Coastal Row­ing Club.

In Fe­bru­ary, more than 100 of his re­cent and past col­leagues held a ceilidh at the Whit­ing Bay to mark his re­tire­ment.

Dr Camp­bell is sur­vived by Yolly, his chil­dren Colin, Euan, Jenny and Jamie, and three grand­chil­dren.

His funeral, which is ex­pected to be ex­cep­tion­ally busy, is tak­ing place to­day (Fri­day) at noon at Lam­lash Ceme­tery to which all are wel­come, as well as af­ter­wards at the Drift Inn.
