Jamie,
I'm interested to see that Carrick was responsible for the"Wee man" at Walkerburn.
I wonder if its theft in recent years was due to his connection or it was just done for the salvage value of the statue?
Whatever the reason, everyone is happy to see him back.

The story of the theft can be viewed here under "W" for Walkerburn.
