The Town Crier

The Town Crier has for many, many years been an integral feature of the Ferry Fair and in recent years a number of weel-kent local characters have performed this important role with distinction but each in his own inimitable fashion.

These have included in the early years of the current Fair format Willie Lamond, better known as “Killiecrankie” and Kate Mackay following whom the role was dormant until it was revived and performed by Johnny “The Rogue” Robertson for some years until ill health forced his retirement.  Johnny sadly passed away in 2008, a tribute from his family can be seen here.  He was succeeded by William “Wuggy” McPhillips who also sadly passed away but whilst still in office. The role was then taken by Lindsay Munro who will be doing his duty once again at this year’s Fair.
