In May 1977 Rennie McOwan arranged a visit to the Neil Munro country entitled "It’s a Far Cry to Loch Awe" for Stirling and Glasgow members of The National Trust for Scotland. Dr Campbell, David Angus and Morag Murray have since died but the spirit of the occasion is here captured as a poignant minding – but the talent of Neil Munro lives on.
