LEGEND is a word often bandied about, but Malcolm McLennan of Waterview is officially a legend.

Wearing a name like Malcolm McLennan, you can assume he comes from a proud Scottish heritage and it was his commitment to this heritage that won him the accolade.

"Scottish piping music stirs the inner core and has a reverential respect about it, whether it be played at war or at pre-sentations," Mr McLennan said.

"I have a great regret that I did not learn to play the pipes, but I love to listen to good piping music."

He was named the Legend of the Maclean Highland Gathering on the weekend and he wanted to share this honour with a dear friend, the late Colin Ryan.

Until Mr Ryan's death in 2003, the pair worked together in the centre ring of the Maclean Highland Gathering as stewards for the Scottish pipe bands.

"He was a flamboyant, colourful figure and he deserves this honour as well," Mr McLennan said.

"For me, the climatic part of the Highland Gathering is to have the massed bands perform a bracket of songs. If that doesn't make you cry, then that person would be deaf."
