Fiona Armstrong (Patron)

BBC News presenter Fiona Armstrong has been a familiar face on national and regional news for many years.

Fiona Armstrong

Her work overseas includes programmes on Aids orphans in Africa and the removal of landmines in Cambodia. At home she has covered stories from domestic violence to politics. Other feature work includes subjects from farming to fishing, from cooking to antiques.

Fiona has columns in the Scottish Field and The Courier. She also presents a programme called Border Life which looks at life in the south of Scotland. In January 2016, Fiona was appointed her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant of Dumfries. She is married to a Scottish clan chief, so tartan and clans feature widely in her life.


It‘s fantastic and its so nice that its so busy and in our local area.  It has huge crowds for such a small place as Blair and it is so community driven which is lovely.
