Just a little background to Stuarts headstone and the inscriptions on it. Stuart was a member of Skye Mountain Rescue and had been since 2012, He was their treasurer at the time of his death. He also spent much time volunteering with SARDA (Search & Rescue Dogs Association (Scotland)) helping with their training and assessment sessions by acting as a "body" for the dogs to find. The inverted S&T at the top of the headstone are from the sash I wore at out medieval wedding and represents our undying love for one another. Stuart died on Ciste Dhubh near Claunie whilst out hiking with other members of SkyeMRT. I will be buried beside him one day.

Tania its background information like this that will prove so valuable over time and I'm sure will be appreciated by all volunteers who contribute to this site.
