Brechin born Sir Robert Watson-Watt has been added to the Scottish Engineering Hall of Fame.

Watson-Watt was added to the Wall of Fame, along with three other Scots, at the James Watt Dinner on Friday, October 4.

Gordon Masterton, Chairman of Judges for the Hall of Fame, said: “These new inductees add to the phenomenal story of Scottish engineering’s contribution to our civilisation.

“They demonstrate the special affinity that Scots have had for engineering and education, and they add diversity to the eleven already inducted.”

The fifteen members of the Hall of Fame tell a story of 250 years of world-beating engineering innovation that has led to massive improvements in our quality of life and to the United Kingdom’s economy.

The Scottish Engineering Hall of Fame celebrates and honours those engineers from, or closely associated with, Scotland who have achieved, or deserve to achieve, greatness.

The genius and skills of many great Scots have contributed hugely to the wellbeing of the world today, in all fields of engineering.
