ONE OF Lochaber’s old­est res­i­dents, Morag Cameron, died peace­fully this week aged 105.

Miss Cameron, passed away in her Roy Bridge home on Mon­day, less than a mile away from the Up­per In­ver­roy croft she was born in.

M iss Cameron cel­e­brated her 105th birth­day on Novem­ber 9 last year, Re­mem­brance Sun­day, at home with her sis­ter, Joan Cooper, aged 98.

The cen­te­nar­ian spent her re­tire­ment knit­ting socks and spend­ing time with her fam­ily and pre­vi­ously said the se­cret to a long life is ‘hard work, eat­ing plenty of cheese and en­joy­ing a dram’.

A Re­quiem Mass will be held for Miss Cameron this Satur­day (Au­gust 15) at 12pm in St Mar­garet’s Church, Roy Bridge. Af­ter­wards she will be laid to rest at the vil­lage’s Cille Choirll ceme­tery.
