The sister of a GP who died following a light aircraft crash has paid a moving tribute to her “absolute rock”.

Doctor Margaret Ann Rous, 37, and her husband, engineer David Rous, 28, were killed when their Piper Cherokee plane went down in Argyll on Saturday.

The couple, who lived in Newport-on-Tay in Fife, were reportedly heading from Dundee to visit relatives on the Hebridean isle of Tiree when tragedy hit.

Dr Rous’ sister Johann Maclean paid tribute to her in a message posted on Facebook.

Referencing the Black Eyed Peas’ song Meet Me Halfway, she wrote: “Big sister, it’s our song, I am going to sing this to you everyday for the rest of my life! You were my absolute rock, and I promise to meet you halfway one day! Today has been the hardest day of my life, I love you Minnie xxxx”

She also thanked friends and family for their sympathy messages.

“Thank you all for the heartfelt messages, phone calls and visits,” she wrote. “We appreciate your thoughts at this heartbreaking time xx.”

Searchers discovered the wreckage on Saturday night after radar contact with the aircraft was lost earlier in the day.

The loss of contact had prompted a multi-emergency response involving the police, ambulance service and the coastguard.

Following the discovery of the wreckage, specialist officers remained at the scene in the Beinn nan Lus area of Glen Kinglass.

Inquiries are continuing into the cause of the accident.
