Obituary – Iain Macarthur MCIT/MILT ‘The Doc

THE DEATH of Iain Alexander Currie Macarthur, whom many of you knew fondly as ‘The Doc’, has shocked and saddened the people of Oban, Argyll and beyond. Iain was a native of Oban who lived and worked for the majority of his 79 years here and was what many of us referred to as ‘old Oban’. Born in Oban in 1938 the only son of the late Dr George and Dorothy Macarthur, he was a scholar of Rockfield Primary and Oban High School. Iain went on to further his education at St Andrews University where he was a student of Medicine and then Aberdeen University where he was a student of Pharmacy. For a short time he worked in Boots Pharmacy in Dundee before returning to Oban to work as a chemist at the Alginate Factory. Although Iain chose not to pursue a career in this field, his interest in medicine and pharmacy remained with him throughout his life.
