Tarbert poet is honoured at Makars’ Court

ONE OF Tarbert’s finest wordsmiths has been honoured in Edinburgh after his words were set in stone on the streets of the city.

Edinburgh’s Makars’ Court has now welcomed George Campbell Hay, 1915-1984, to its illustrious ranks with the unveiling of a memorial to the famous Scots poet.
