Selkirk or James Douglas Hamilton is Director at Lennoxlove House Limited.
Hamilton’s dad was an even more interesting character.
When in 1941, Hitlers’ deputy, Rudolf Hess flew to Scotland, he asked to be taken to Hamilton’s dad, the Duke of Hamilton. Hess believed that Hamilton headed a faction people prepared to do a deal with the Nazis and immediately asked his captors to be taken to him.
I haven’t read Hamilton junior’s book about the incident but I feel sure it exonerates his old man from any charges of Nazi sympathy or treason.
