"If there was any parish function of whatever kind in St. Peter's Hall or the Church, Ruairidh would be there giving his support. In 1982 in Skye, he won the National Mod Medal for traditional singing. He was a fine accomplished singer and used his talents especially in his younger days at concerts and ceilidhs and in Church. He was part of the Daliburgh Church choir and anytime the choir was called upon for any special service, Ruairidh would be there. He rarely missed the Sunday evening service and he personally took charge arranging and leading the singing." (Written by Canon John Angus Galbraith in 2003)
