Fort Augustus Old Boys Association

The Old Boys Association serves to keep the spirit alive of The Fort Augustus Old Boys; the former pupils -  boys and girls - who served at the Abbey School in Fort Augustus.  Since the School closed in the 90s (and subsequently the Abbey itself), the Old Boys Association has maintained to provide a network amongst Old Boys and to organise an annual dinner for Old Boys and their partners. This website assists to maintain this contact and support. Please bear in mind that this website is run by Old Boys from the school who have nothing to do with the monastery, school nor Benedictine Order.

More information about the Old Boys Association and how to join and support us can be found here.

A Rare Find - 1930s notebook from Abbey schoolboy

A notebook containing photos, fixture lists, many newspaper cuttings, a ticket for the Scotland v England rugby match in 1939 and many precious cuttings and notes was recently discovered. The content of the notebook has been scanned and the whole notebook can be found on the website.

The notebook belonged to a Freddie Macqueen and his daughter has kindly given permission for the notebook to be made available on this website. Click on the notebook picture to go to the dedicate page.

 

Mike Drummond RIP

This website is a tribute to Mike Drummond - one of our Old Boys (Carlekemp 1951-1956, Abbey 1956 to 1961). Mike set up the website and maintained it until his sad passing in April. Without his initiative and perseverance, many Old Boys would not be in touch today. As a man of vision, it is only right that we keep the website going. Without the right skills, this may be a challenge but we'll try. Thanks Mike for everything you did for us.
