By that time, however, Alistair’s family was growing. He had met and married a Fort William woman named Veronica, and she had given birth to a son, Andrew. Then, two years later, another son, Graham, came along. Now with young children in tow, the pair decided to relocate once more.
Eventually, Alistair and his family settled in Nairn, a picturesque seaside town on Scotland’s eastern coast. Just 17 miles from Inverness, it was within commuting distance to the city center. There, they bought a large house and set about running it as a restaurant and hotel.
Sadly, the business was short lived, and the Wilsons soon shut up shop. However, they continued to live in the property as their family home. Then, in 2004 Alistair found a new job at an environmental consultancy firm and decided to leave the Bank of Scotland for good.
