In part 4 of the Scottish Daily Record's series on Sir Paul, a local resident of Campbeltown shares her memories of Linda. Anne Leith, recalls working at the local bakery and being photographed by Linda:"Linda was always going about the town snapping everything and everyone - even us girls in the bakery in our overalls, all covered in dough. I'm sure those photos have been chucked out long ago, but at the time we couldn't believe Linda McCartney was taking our photo."Although she eventually became a popular figure in the town, at first the townspeople were a bit wary of her. Mrs. Leith recalls:"Folk weren't that keen on her. It was a general feeling around the world that this woman had snaffled Paul for herself. But we soon discovered she was a lovely person and so down-to-earth. She took time to say hello and wasn't snobby. When Paul came up here with Jane Asher she was the glamorous actress, but Linda wanted to live as simply as possible. High Park Farm was just four walls and a tin roof when Paul bought it. I don't think it's changed that much."
