Obituary – Sarah Holman 1951-2017

SARAH HOLMAN, who has died aged 65, stood out among a dwindling number of Highland landowners who hold the view that owning an estate comes with a duty and responsibility to the land and the local community.

She took an active part in the life of the villages of Ilmington in Warwickshire and Acharacle, Argyll, where the family trust made land available for a new primary school, a commemorative woodland-walk and an extension to the graveyard.

Her great love was stalking on the family’s Shielbridge estate, near Acharacle. There was nothing she liked better after a morning swim in the icy Atlantic waters than setting out for the high tops, often not returning until late evening.
