Born in Edinburgh, Peter moved to the Island of Bute as a young child where he was brought up and educated, and has remained in this rural community for most of his life, apart from a brief spell while studying at the University of Paisley where he received a BA (hons) in Business and Management.

Peter previously served as Secretary of Bute Community Council for seven years, ensuring that the views of local people are represented at all levels of government - as well as to public and private bodies.

Peter has been a member of the Conservative Party for more than 15 years, and is actively involved in his local association. He stood as a candidate for the Bute ward in Argyll & Bute Council elections, and also campaigns for Holyrood and Westminster candidates, and actively campaigned for Better Together during the Scottish Independence Referendum.

Businesses trying to transport goods and animals to and from the Isle of Bute in HGV lorries were left behind when the Rothesay Ferries were disrupted last Friday (12th October) in the aftermath of Storm Callum.

Thank you

On behalf of all the candidates, and our newly elected group of councillors, Argyll and Bute Conservative and Unionist Association would like to thank all of our members and supporters, who turned out in such great numbers and voted in the local elections last week. 

Get on with the day job

It was a pleasure to be joined on Bute today by Shadow Secretary for Health, Donald Cameron MSP.

As we spoke to local residents, the recurring theme was opposition to Indyref2, with people just wanting the SNP to get on with the day job.

Rothesay ready for a change

The team and I have been out delivering election addresses all over our beautiful island.

We have been getting a great response from voters who say they are ready for a change.

On 4th May, vote for a strong local candidate to who will work as part of a team for a better future.

Training for the future

Taking a short break from the campaign trail, Peter was in London at the weekend undertaking a Leadership in Public Life training course.
