Plockton mourns death of ‘Magard’

TRIBUTES have been paid to a ‘well-known and wellliked’ man from Plockton.

Known to many as ‘Magard’, Ian MacKenzie, 80, from Frithard Road, died at his home late last year.

Community stalwart Charlie MacRae said: ‘His many friends were sorry to hear of the death. He was born in Plockton and after leaving school became a joiner with local contractor Ken Mac-Donald and later branched out on his own. He was a keen sportsman. He held the high jump record of six foot three inches at the local games. There was no ‘Fosbury flop’ then, resulting in Ian breaking his arm twice.’
