An Aberdeen businessman has been honoured by the Braemar Royal Highland Society.

Jim Milne CBE has received the Honoured Life Membership award from the Duke of Rothesay

Mr Milne, who is the chairman of the Aberdeen-based Balmoral Group, was presented with his award as part of the virtual Highland Games that was filmed recently in the Princess Royal and Duke of Fife Memorial Park.

Jim was recognised for his kind financial support and outstanding
dedication to the society, particularly in the building of the new Highland Pavilion, which was officially opened by HM the Queen during her visit to Braemar Gathering two years ago.

Mr Milne said: “This wonderful honour from the Braemar Royal Highland Society was made even more special by being presented by HRH The Duke of Rothesay.

“I am a huge fan of the Braemar Gathering, and Highland Games in general, and think the status of these events should not be underestimated in terms of cultural and historical importance.

“I was delighted when I heard the Gathering was to be filmed and streamed worldwide as, to my knowledge, it’s the only highland games that have been permitted to go ahead this year.

“I would like to thank the BRHS and HRH The Duke of Rothesay and hopefully we will be able to gather in Braemar next year for the real thing.”

The Duke visited the event along with the society’s vice patron Captain Mark Nicolson and was also presented to Mr Charlie Murray, vice chairman of The Scottish Highland Games Association, and champion heavy Kyle Randalls from Grangemouth.

David Geddes, president of the Braemar Royal Highland Society, said he was delighted the society had made the award in recognition of Jim’s valued and enthusiastic support for the highland game.

Jim becomes one of only fifteen people who hold this position with the Society.

He was accompanied at the presentation by his wife Gillian.
