I would like to trace the family of this man who was the Commander in Chief of the 93rd Regiment at Foot of the Argyle and Sutherland Higlanders. He won his VC at the relief of Lucknow in 1848. He was born near the McBean district of Kinchyre near the Eastern end of Loch Ness.

His medals, sword and uniform are on display in the 93rd's museum at Stirling Castle. A fantastic visit for anyone who is a McBean. Can anyone let me have some information on this wonderful man?

Just for the record my wife is Felicity Jane McBean and I am trying to fill in her side of the family tree.

Many thanks, Terry.

Stirling Castle no longer sells the Argyll and Royal Highlanders regimental whiskey in the museum. But when they did, I'd buy a small bottle and toast the good Brigadier!

The castle is a GREAT visit! The Royal Palace, inside the Castle has been totally renovated and shows the Palace in the reign of King James the Fifth.
