The late Hugh Smith

The Oban Times - - LEISURE -

Many in the High­land com­mu­nity in Glas­gow ex­tend sin­cere con­do­lences to the fam­ily of the late Hugh Smith, an Oban Times colum­nist for many years, whose death was an­nounced re­cently.

Dur­ing his time in the city as Glas­gow Let­ter cor­re­spon­dent, he was a dear friend to all the as­so­ci­a­tions, par­tic­u­larly Cly­de­bank and Dis­trict High­land As­so­ci­a­tion, where his pres­ence as ei­ther chair­man or sup­porter of ceilidhs was greatly ap­pre­ci­ated.

The Cly­de­bank High­landers got in touch with me with the fol­low­ing trib­ute: ‘Hugh was a true High­land gen­tle­man – so proud of his her­itage, his cul­ture and in the Gaelic lan­guage and will be greatly missed by all who had the plea­sure of know­ing him.’
