/ Bro. Robert McKinstry PM

I was initiated into Lodge St Thomas Kilwinning Dalmellington in 1986, following in the footsteps of my father. I have enjoyed 30+ years in freemasonry, having worked my way through all the Lodge offices, eventually sitting as Right Worshipful Master in 1996.

I enjoy the friendship and charitable aspects of freemasonry and thinks that it is a great organisation for improving your wellbeing. I have served the Lodge as secretary for 20+ years and have long family ties to the lodge going back 100 years. I am an honorary member of Lodge Wallace St Hugh 1212 Crosshill and I am active in other masonic orders beyond the craft.
