200th Anniversary Photos (1947)


Thank you to Bro. Brian Scott for submitting these fantastic photos of the Masonic Parade which

marked the 200th Anniversary of Lodge Inveraray in 1947. Brethren marched from Inveraray Castle to the Lodge accompanied by pipers, and the same tradition was repeated for our 250th Anniversary in 1997. Additional photos show the Brethren congregating on the Front Green, and paying their respects to those who had fallen in both world wars at the war memorial. The individual images that make up this collage can be viewed in our Photo Gallery section.

200th Anniversary Order Of Service (1947)

Lodge Inveraray Donates Funds To Strachur Pipers

The brethren of Lodge Inveraray St. John No. 50 held a raffle at their annual Installation in January in memory of the late Angus Paterson of Strachur, which raised the sum of £300. Angus was a well-loved member of the Lodge and the driving force behind the monthly raffles raising funds for local and national charities and good causes over many years.

It was decided that his widow, Margaret, should be asked to nominate a local good cause to donate the proceeds of this raffle to and she chose the Strachur Piping Association where Angus had also been a member and a past president. On Friday 24th March 2017 several of the brethren of the Inveraray Lodge travelled to Strachur to present the cheque to the Piping Association and a bouquet of flowers to Mrs Paterson.

Bro. James Brown - Jubilee Certificate (50 years)

R.W.M. James Scott was delighted to present Bro. James Brown with a certificate

to mark his 50 years as a member of Lodge No. 50. Congratulations James

and thank you for your outstanding contribution to the work of the lodge over

half a century.
