The latter at Perth City Hall in 1974. Bill retired from the ring in 1980 and has served on the committee of Newtonmore Highland Games for the last 20 years.
 
Speaking of his appointment Bill said, "What a great honour it is to be asked to be Chieftain at Blackford Highland Games this year. I never thought all those years ago I would be standing in this position back here where it all began".
