Colin McEachran MBE QC 1940-2022

May 24, 2022

Commonwealth Games Scotland note the sad passing of our former Chair, Colin McEachran MBE QC.  Colin won a silver medal for Scotland in Fullbore Shooting in Christchurch, NZ,  in 1974. He was a long standing CGS Board member and Hon Legal Advisor and was CGS Chair between 1995 and 1999.  Colin also led Team Scotland as Chef de Mission in 1998 in Kuala Lumpur and was named a Life Member at completion of his term in office as Chair.

CGS Chair Paul Bush OBE reflected the feelings of the whole Scottish Commonwealth Games community saying “Colin had a huge legacy making a huge contribution over 50 years to the Games movement, in Scotland and beyond.  First as a very successful athlete, then as a long standing administrator and Advisor.  I will sorely miss his counsel and passion for Scotland and the Games.  The thoughts of us all are with Charlotte and Colin’s family and friends at this time”.
