Any relation to Duncan Shearer (ex Chelsea and latterly Inverness Caley Thistle amongst others before managing Aberdeen FC)- he was of Fort William origin? Another Fort William Shearer I once knew was a Peter Shearer who was a sergeant in the RAF (once served with 112 Signals Unit RAF Stornoway in the 80's)

Does anyone know who owns Feastown now? My grandmother was Barbara Lennie Shearer who was born in Feastown. She married Alfred Jackson in 1909 and had 6 children. My father, Alfred Peter Shearer Jackson was the second eldest.

My twin sister Edna and I, Anne, were the last children to be born in Feastown. Our mother was Anna Jackson, one of the six children of Arthur and Barbara Jackson. Along with our brother, Robert, we will be in Stronsay Sept. 9th - 12th, 2013, and will take pictures and post at a later date.
