Andrew Douglas-Home

Andrew Douglas-Home has lived on the banks of the River Tweed for most of his life. He was awarded the OBE in 2019 for his services to fishing and Scottish culture, recognising his long work helping to secure the environment of the Tweed River and the legacy of Sir Walter Scott and the house he built Abbotsford. Educated at Eton and Oxford, he worked as a chartered accountant and was a Tweed Commissioner for over 35 years, acting as Chairman of the River Tweed Commission and Tweed Foundation for eight years between 2004 and 2012. He is, of course, a keen fisherman.
