CLAN CARRUTHERS: An appeal from our Chief

Dear Clansmen and Clanswomen,

Please see below, a message on behalf of Sir Crispin Agnew of Lochnaw, Chief of Agnew.

Sir Crispin acted as legal advisor during my successful hearing at the Lyon Court.

Sir Crispin’s son and heir Mark’s mental health took a battering after two failed attempts to row the Atlantic. But it now seems extreme outdoor pursuits have saved him.

He is now kayaking the north west passage ( ). The team of four, aptly called the Arctic Cowboys consists of three Texans and Mark from Scotland, has about 500 miles to go, but the winter weather is closing in.

Even if they don’t achieve the whole distance of about 2000 miles, Mark has gone further than any human-powered vessel has gone before and has a host of stories to tell of polar bears, narwhals, fast flowing ice and more terrifying incidents.

He is doing this to raise money for a charity called Wilderness Foundation ( ) which takes those with poor mental health into the outdoors and connects them to nature. This is something close to Mark’s heart and is exactly what he is trying to promote.

There is absolutely no pressure but if you would like to donate to this cause, this is the link:  which gives an account of the expedition.

Thank you for your kind consideration in the matter.

Peter Carruthers of Holmains

Clan Chief

Chief of the Name and Arms of Carruthers
