Jane (Calder) McElligott

My father's family is from Dornoch. He was Donald Prentiss Calder, b. 1916. His father was William Calder, his grandfather was Donald Calder, chief of works at the Skibo Castle, particularly during the renovations done by Andrew Carnegie. My great-grandfather lived on the castle estate until his death.
His uncle was Donald J Ross, the golf-course architect. My father grew up on the Dornoch course, learning club making skills from his uncles.
