Lord Smith of Kelvin, the owner of the island of Inchmarnock off Bute’s west coast, is to become the honorary patron of the Baird of Bute Society.

The appointment of Lord Smith, who is also the chancellor of the University of Strathclyde and the chair of the organising committee for the Glasgow 21014 Commonwealth Games, was announced by Christopher Markwell, chairman of the Baird of Bute Society’s board of trustees.

The society was formed in 2010 to honour the memory and achievements of Bute blacksmith Andrew Blain Baird, who undertook the first all-Scottish heavier-than-air powered flight at Ettrick Bay in September 1910, by promoting a range ofawards in education, innovation and aviation.
