Douglas Gilroy

Born in Balfron, Scotland in 1953 I am now registered blind and live with my wife Margaret in Dumbarton. Prior to being registered blind I was the Assistant Coaching Manager with one of Scotland’s largest bus and coach companies (Alexander’s Bluebird Coaches) and in 1988 accepted early retirement on becoming registered blind. Since losing my sight, I returned to mainstream education and obtained a Higher National Diploma in social science. For a period I worked with a Scottish Local Authority, followed by a Scottish wide charity – Inclusion Scotland, as a disability access officer.

My interests include listening to books (biographies & autobiographies), music, socialising and traveling.
