Mackie’s of Scotland scholarship helps intrepid researcher to go wild in Mongolia
A LIFECHANGING expedition to investigate the impact of the cashmere trade was funded by the Sir Maitland Mackie Scholarship at The University of Aberdeen.
Zara Morris-Trainer secured the scholarship from Mackie’s of Scotland, enabling her to explore Mongolia and undertake valuable research into the sustainability of the cashmere trade and it’s effects on the local ecosystem.
The Maitland and Halldis Mackie Scholarship was set up by the university in 2015 to promote research into renewable energy, environmental land use and sustainability. Carrying on Maitland’s legacy, Mackie’s Westertown Farm in Aberdeenshire includes Scotland’s largest private solar farm, four wind turbines as well as biomass, helping the family firm to become a net exporter of renewable electricity to the grid.
