His mother took the advice of his guardians and sent him to Glasgow College (University), foregoing sending him to Aberdeen, where his father’s family lived (unfortunately ‘tainted’ with Jacobite sympathies), or to St Andrews (only 20 miles from Kirkcaldy) or to Edinburgh, across the Firth of Forth.
