Willie Fraser - Dornoch Pipe Band
William J Fraser is a lifelong resident of Embo who joined Dornoch Pipe Band in 1966 at the age of 12. For the next decade his piping skills developed and at the age of 24 was appointed Pipe Major, a position he has retained for the last 43 years - making him one of the longest serving Pipe Majors in Scotland, if not the World!

William Hamilton - The Embo Trust
In the last year William has gone above and beyond in serving the community of Embo, in particular in his role with the Embo Trust and the operation of the Community Shop. He was out in all weather's, making sure the elderly & vulnerable had the essentials they needed, organising rotas, stocking the shop, dealing with suppliers, communicating via social media, organising Christmas Hampers, gifts for kids and many other things.


Marian Swanson - St Finnbarr’s Charity Shop
Marian has worked tirelessly for more than 15 years generating funds for good causes through the St Finbarr’s Charity shop in Dornoch, which in 2019 distrubuted over £16,000 to local & national good causes! Marian also ran a weekly coffee morning in the Dornoch Social Club and was collecting donations for a foodbank long before the pandemic started. She is a good friend to many and an inspiration to all who are fortunate enough to come into contact with her.
