James (Jim) Cosgrove died at the beginning of February, in his 99th year. ScotWays was saddened to learn of this and is grateful for the time he spent supporting the work of the Society.

He was appointed a Director of the Society at the 1984 AGM and served until 1993. For many years, he lead walks and was vigorously involved in signposting. Jim was also heavily engaged in the cross-Scotland challenges. He became known as a superb raconteur and conversationalist and found time to be greatly interested in music. Jim had been a gents’ hairdresser and, after retirement, lived in Letham, Angus, with his wife. Following the death of his wife, he moved into Benholm Care Home in Forfar, which is where he died peacefully.
