Portrait photograph of Kenneth Nisbet Mure QC (1947-2016) in barrister’s wig and gown. From the estate of Robert Nisbet, Heanish.
Kenneth Mure’s mother lived on Tiree, and while he lived in Giffnock, he retained a holiday home on the island. Graduating from Glasgow University, he was qualified in both Scots and English law, and was an expert in revenue and property law. Mr Mure became a highly respected Advocate for Scotland in 1975, and took silk as a Queen’s Council for the UK in 1989.
He left over £3m in his will to create the Misses Nisbet Educational Fund, a trust that would be used for “the advancement in education and that for the benefit of residents or former residents of Tiree and in particular those who have attended school in Tiree and such other persons who in the opinion of the trustees have a substantial personal or family connection with Tiree.”
