David Kiltie, MBE, aka
Mr. Maybole, was an extraordinary community servant. He was born in
Maybole and lived there faithfully serving the community all his life as
attested by his many civic minded colleagues and their many accolades.
David was my good friend and partner in creating
this website for Maybole. In the early days of the Internet there were
few Scottish towns with a website. I was interested in finding out more
about my Scottish family history and David wanted the world to know
about the vibrant community life and rich history of Maybole. Over many
years David and I exchanged messages and images to document all that was
Maybole, past and present. I live in the US and made several wonderful
trips to my ancestral town with my family, where David, his family and
friends greeted and treated us with the legendary Scottish hospitality.
Words cannot express my gratitude for the years of
friendship and collaboration that I enjoyed with this notable of
notables, David Kiltie, M.B.E, JP.
