Local heroes honoured

A NUMBER of people from the Highlands and Islands are to be recognised in this year’s Queen’s birthday honours.

Robert Ryan, 79, will receive an MBE for services to weaving and the economy on the Isle of Mull.

The original Isle of Mull Weavers was founded by Robert and Kathy Ryan in 1987. When they retired in 2003 Robert helped move the 1920s and 1950s looms to Ardalanish. He then advised on, and helped build, the viable weaving operation and trained young apprentices to carry on the skilled work, which has rejuvenated a small agricultural community in the Ross of Mull.
