Woodmill High School, Dunfermline.

Barbara Dickson.

I had heard Gillian McKeith (the Scottish-American fraud nutritionist) attended for a short while.

Young lad, Murray McCallum, currently at Edinburgh Rugby has recently got full caps for Scotland. Surprised as there was never anything of that rugby stuff when I was at the school.

Literally nobody of any significance has gone to Elgin High School

My mate Paul did. Even though he lived in Bishopmill.

So he was famous for that.

Lode Heath Comprehensive.

The only vaguely famous person I can think of is James Bovill; a Midlands Today reporter.

My Dad however, went to the same school as Midge Ure.

To the best of my knowledge no-one of any real fame attended by school but when I first moved to the Aberdeen area in the late 1980s I met an improbable number of people who claimed to have been at school with Annie Lennox.
