A memorial to a former Perth Academy pupil who died in a hillwalking accident has been unveiled at a nature reserve.

Euan Wright from Dundee, a graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone, was an assistant architect with Perth-based Bell Ingram Design when he fell in October 2012 aged 30.

He had completed numerous projects for the RSPB and now Bell Ingram Design and his family — in consultation with the RSPB — have constructed a wall in his memory next to the RSBB reserve at the Loch of Starthbeg in Aberdeenshire, the last project which the talented architect designed before his death.

The refurbished visitor’s centre was officially opened recently with a ribbon cutting ceremony with members of Mr Wright’s family, Bell Ingram Design and RSPB colleagues in attendance.

Scott Ramsay, architectural technician at Bell Ingram Design, who worked on the reserve project with Mr Wright and then on the feature wall, said: “Everyone at Bell Ingram was shocked and saddened when we heard the news of Euan’s accident.

“Euan was a well-liked and valued member of the team, who was hugely committed to design and architecture and we wanted to do something memorable to commemorate his life and work.

“He had worked on the design of a number of projects for the RSPB, and as one of these projects was the Loch of Strathberg Reserve, this seemed like the perfect setting.”

Mr Wright’s parents Mary and David were part of the official opening celebrations and say they look forward to revisiting with their grandchildren in the springtime and showing them the special feature wall which their son’s friends made to remember him.

The Loch of Strathberg RSPB Reserve — located near Crimond in Aberdeenshire — protects Scotland’s largest dune loch, plus its surrounding wetlands, grassland and woodland, and the wealth of wildlife that lives there.
