Hi, I am sure that it could be my granny Lottie Kemp (nee Anderson of Blackbraes Orphir) brother, her dad was Peter Anderson, Any one help?

Yes he did, James, Stanley, Herbert, William (died young), Erland. And 3 (maybe 4 sisters?) Lena, Robina, Charlotte S (who married John Kemp). So could be Peter was Herberts brother, I dont have a DOB or any info for Herbert. Peter's parents were Peter Anderson (Stone Mason) and Robina Caithness (from Stronsay).

Peter did indeed have a brother called Herbert.
