A Far North law student, who is spending his summer working on family farms in Sutherland and Caithness, has notched up considerable academic success.
Mure Grant has scored top grades across the board in his two years at Aberdeen University, attaining the highest mark out of 206 students in his year in succession law and also the joint highest mark in administrative law.
The 20-year-old hails from Forss in Caithness and his mother, Dr Fiona Grant, works in education.
Mure is currently helping out at his family’s farm as well as at the Armadale farm run by his aunt, well-known north Sutherland farmer Joyce Campbell.
His spare time is spent competing at sheep dog trials where he is well known on the Caithness and Sutherland circuit and has won numerous trophies.
Mure has credited his first-class results with the excellent teaching he is receiving at the Law Faculty at Aberdeen.
He said: “These results reflect the great teaching that I have had. I would not have been able to achieve the grades that I have without the knowledge and guidance of so many professors and particularly Professor Roddy Paisley.”
