Once in Edinburgh, Ian gained a scholarship to George Heriot's School, a prestigious all boys school established in 1886 that is overlooked by Edinburgh Castle. He studied Spanish, Art, and Music, of course. Yet, as you might expect from one as dedicated as Ian, a more important musical education took place locked up in his room with his guitar three flights up on a quiet street in Pilrig. He was getting into Jazz and Blues, styles that were not catered for at school.
