  • Notes 
    • Cashier, Accountant. Motor Cycle enthusiast. Thomas Arnott Moffat was a trials rider who started competing in 1950 on an AJS 350 motorcycle. He rode the Scottish Six Days Trial twice, in 1953 and again in 1954, both times on this AJS 16MC, which is still owned by the Moffat family along with his ex-factory trials Matchless OLH722 which he bought in late 1957. Known as ‘Arnott’, he was Secretary and Treasurer of the SACU for 32 years (1956-1987) and in that time he assisted in promoting the sport of motorcycling throughout Scotland. Between 1969 and 1983, he attended the International Six Days Trial eight times, assisting the SACU riders at these events. During his travels, Arnott Moffat encouraged many overseas riders to come and compete at the annual Scottish Six Days Trial. Having suffered ill health from 1987, he died in 1997 at the age of 67 years. He enjoyed meeting his many friends, whom he had met the world over through motorcycle sport, both at Fort William and further afield. The T. Arnott Moffat Memorial Road Run was an idea which has finally become a reality in 2017.
