Geordie Easton and Wull Renwick

These local colourful characters were interviewed by Hamish Henderson more than 40 years ago. We have their interview by kind permission from the School of Scottish Studies. Both played the fiddle and entertained in the local Stow pubs. Geordie is mentioned by both Sandy Aitchison and Margaret Chisholme in their interviews. He was a local shepherd and mole and rabbit catcher. He lost a leg in an accident in the hills. He fashioned his own wooden leg from a tree stump as the ones he was given by the local hospital kept breaking.
