Angus Robertson Macgillivray Gravestone Western Cemetery Dundee Scotland [01:07]
Tour Scotland video of the Dr Angus Robertson Macgillivray gravestone on visit to the Western Cemetery in Dundee. Angus, born 1892, died 1955, was an Ophthalmic surgeon in Dundee. During the 1930s he laid claim to the Chieftainship of the Clan MacGillivray His claim was based on his family's connection to the Lagg and Balnain townships on the Dunmaglass estate. His grandfather William was alive during the estate litigations of the 1850s, but, owing to the loss of family papers and prohibitive costs of entering the legal fray, was unable to assert his case at the time. Dr. Angus was the first MacGillivray of the 20th century to officially matriculate personal arms with Lord Lyon, and these were based very closely on designs found on armorial gravestones that can still be seen at the burial ground of the Strathnairn MacGillivrays at Dunlichity Church. However, he was hampered by the same lack of documentation that faced his grandfather and thus was never able to satisfy Lord Lyon's stringent requirements for recognition as Chief.

Burns Night : Addressing the Haggis : John Knox in the Crypt of the Guildhall, London January 2013 [02:49]
Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face, Great chieftain o' the puddin-race! Aboon them a' ye tak your place, Painch, tripe, or thairm: Weel are ye wordy of a grace As lang's my arm. The groaning trencher there ye fill, Your hurdies like a distant hill, Your pin wad help to mend a mill In time o' need, While thro' your pores the dews distil Like amber bead. His knife see rustic Labour dight, An' cut ye up wi' ready slight, Trenching your gushing entrails bright Like onie ditch; And then, O what a glorious sight, Warm-reekin, rich! Then, horn for horn, they strech an' strive: Deil tak the hindmost! on they drive, Till a' their weel-swall'd kytes belyve, Are bent like drums; Then auld Guidman, maist like to rive, 'Bethankit!' hums. Is there that owre his French ragout Or olio that wad staw a sow, Or fricassee wad mak her spew Wi' perfect sconner, Looks down wi' sneering, scornfu' view On sic a dinner? Poor devil! see him owre his trash, As feckless as a wither'd rash, His spindle shank, a guid whip-lash, His nieve a nit; Thro' bluidy flood or field to dash, O how unfit! But mark the Rustic, haggis-fed, The trembling earth resounds his tread. Clap in his walie nieve a blade, He'll make it whissle; An' legs, an' arms, an' heads will sned, Like taps o' thrissle. Ye Pow'rs wha mak mankind your care, And dish them out their bill o 'fare, Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware That jaups in luggies; But, if ye wish her gratefu' prayer, Gie her a Haggis!
