My name is Ian Macrae.
I presume you are referring to Duncan Macrae the actor who featured in films like The Kidnappers, Tunes of Glory, Whisky Galore, etc. If so, I understand that my father was a cousin of this Duncan and I, too, would be interested in any info you get on him which might also relate to our family.
My father's name was Colin Macrae and he came from a little place called Culkein in north-west Sutherland. We had no contact with Duncan or his family (I believe he had two sons). Apart from the fact that they lived in Glasgow and we were in Edinburgh, my father's family (he had five sisters) were all rather religious, being Free Presbyterians, and did not associate with folk who worked or travelled "on the Sabbath Day".
I have not done any genealogy research myself but I have a brother, Alaister, whose wife has done quite a lot and might be able to give you some of the information you are looking for.
As I say I should be very interested to hear what you have on Duncan's family and if you wish I can probably put you in touch with my brother to compare notes on family ancestry.
