Weʼre raising £10,000 to Fund a Memorial to Lionel Main


Don't have time to donate right now?


We are raising £10,000 to fund a memorial to Lionel Main ; the Lionel Main Memorial Trust. This fund will be used to assist young fishers to fish the river Spey and to develop potential as future ghillies, in cooperation with Countryside Learning Scotland, the Scottish Angling Development Strategy and the Gamekeepers Welfare Trust.

The Reidhaven Estate will donate one week’s exclusive access to one of the Castle Grant Beats annually together with use of the fishing hut and the services of a ghillie for the above purpose.

The Lionel Main Memorial Trust will be registered as a charity with OSCR and managed in accordance with OSCR regulations.

If insufficient funds are raised to make the project viable, the fund will be donated to The Gamekeepers Welfare Trust.

In addition, a pool on Castle Grant No 2 beat will be renamed in Lionel’s honour and an oak tree will be planted in his memory.

    We have had very productive discussions with CLS and the Reidhaven Estate and the prospects are exciting! More details will follow. We have received some very generous donations, for which we are very grateful, but small amounts will also be very gratefully accepted. It is the thought that counts!

    A fine teacher and good friend - with the uncanny knack of turning up just when you needed a bit of help! He set the standard for what an exceptional ghillie should be.

    Not just the finest gillie but a true countryman. It was always so special spending time in his company.
