Today, the Camerons of Glenspean are Julie and Sandy Cameron, the strength behind the flourishing Meredith Dairy. The Dairy is based at a Glenspean much enlarged from the property bought by Neil Wilson Cameron, Sandy?s grandfather.

Yet it would not exist but for the work of those who have gone before, firstly Neil Wilson and Kay, then Sandy?s parents, Neil Gordon and June Cameron. 

Neil Gordon Cameron recounts the story of his family, and the property Glenspean, which have produced Meredith Dairy, a great intergenerational family edifice built on solid foundations.
