B' e Sìm Friseal, 17mh MacShimidh (1911-1995), an 25mh Ceann Cinnidh air na Frisealaich. Choisinn e cliù mar Chommando Breatannach anns an Dàrna Cogadh. Chaidh a dhroch leòn anns an ionnsaigh air Normandaidh ann an 1944, ach dh'fhàs e na b' fheàrr. Anns na bliadhnaichean an dèidh a' chogaidh, chuir e seachad mòran ùine ann am poileataigs, agus air oighreachdan an teaghlaich mun Mhanachainn.

Anns a' chòmhradh seo ri Sam Marshall bho Moray Firth Radio, tha Morair Lòbhat a', bruidhinn mu athair, 16mh MacShimidh (1871-1933), a stèidhich na Lovat Scouts ann an 1899.

'Well he was a very public-spirited man; he was chairman/convenor of the Inverness County Council; he was a public servant in the best sense of the word; he took immense pride in his estate; he was a great Highland chief; he was great sportsman; he set a great example; he raised the Lovat Scouts; he ended up as a general and was a good soldier. He was a fine man and he was immensely respected in the Highlands. And he was chairman of the Forestry Commission; he started the Forestry Commission. He rightly thought that we were going to be short of timber one day, as indeed we still are, but there was a better market for timber in those days. This is one of the things that worries me now. We buy in timber from overseas, from the Baltic, and for trade agreements with other countries, and home-grown timber doesn't hold the place it should in the UK. We only grow about nine per cent of our national requirements which just seems a pity. My father was also a great agriculturist as indeed his father was and his grandfather. All the best farms on the estate were reclaimed from the sea, like Easter and Wester Lovat, and all the area around the Bogroy Inn, that used to be salt water right up to Balachraggan Farm; it was all reclaimed.'
