Mourners lined Knowe Road to say a final farewell to Stewart Lambie MBE after his funeral last Thursday.

As a mark of respect his coffin was carried from the Brodick Church by serving members of the Arran Mountain Rescue Team, of which Stewart was a founding member and team leader for 27 years. He was then transported to Brodick Old Cemetery in one of the mountain rescue vehicles where he was laid to rest after a private family service.

Mr Lambie who died on Monday April 16 at Lamlash War Memorial Hospital was well known for his community work. He was 85.  A spokesman for the mountain rescue team said: ‘His commitment and contribution to the team over the years has been extraordinary and he will always be a big part of everything we do.’

A full obituary of the life and work of Mr Lambie will appear in the future edition of the Banner.
