Firstly, Ian Nimmo presented an RLS Club cheque to Chris Seiler, of the Colinton Community Conservation Trust, to help speed their project to create a statue of the boy Stevenson outside his grandfather's church.
Next moment a flabbergasted Ian, former RLS Club chairman, was being presented with a handsome quaich to mark his retirement from the Committee. Mr Ian Nimmo presents an RLS Club cheque to Chris Seiler to help fund-raising for the Colinton Community Conservation Trust's project of international significance. Chairman John Macfie presents Ian Nimmo with a handsome quaich to mark his retirement from the RLS Club's committee after many years of service. Ian Nimmo spoke about the Kidnapped, Memories of an Island and The Merry Men connection, and reminded us of the noise, hustle and bustle during Stevenson's time on the island when Dubh Heartach Lighthouse was being built. Marks Steeds, up from Bristol for the occasion, fascinated us with his specialist knowledge about the film and Robert Newton, and Ian Nimmo recounted how Treasure Island came to be written in Braemar in the rain. Afterwards, we enjoyed a jolly lunch in the Cramond Hotel, where Ian Nimmo told us about Stevenson connections with Cramond.

"The Making of Treasure Island" - an illustrated talk by Ian Nimmo, on "Treasure Island".
Supper 8.15pm Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island" has never been out of print since it first appeared as "The Sea Cook", by "Captain George North", in 1881. Former SAC Vice-President and Chairman of the Robert Louis Stevenson Club, Ian Nimmo, will trace the dramatic events that led to Stevenson first picking up his paintbrush, then pen and paper, and, with the rain drumming on the windows of the "late Mrs MacGregor's cottage", in Braemar, began to scribble at speed. In the previous two years he had been estranged from his family, cut off without a penny by his father, encountered near death in the Californian outback, and married controversially.

Ian Nimmo, the chairman of the Robert Louis Stevenson Club, said it gifted the collection to the city in 1964 in order that more people could appreciate it."One of the main conditions that the RLS Club agreed with the city when it handed over its collection for safe keeping was that it would be on public view," he said.
