Norrie Maclaren was born in 1948 and lives on the West Coast of Scotland, near to Fort William, in the former summer house of florist and cook, Constance Spry. Describing himself as a ‘gifted ‘generalist’, not one to sit still for long, Maclaren is developing a number of film and television projects through his production company on the Ardnamurchan peninsula.
