Following the death of  Robert Gibson the family moved to the farm of Lochside on the Mainland.  Hugh Gibson went to school in Stenness where the headmaster recognised his intellectual ability.

Hugh qualified as a doctor at Edinburgh University.  He practiced in Longhope for a time and married Louise Smith from Kirkwall where her father owned a drapers shop.

Hugh and his family moved to Milnathort in Perth & Kinross.  During WW1, he ran a hospital outside Edinburgh for the treatment of shell-shocked soldiers.

It is rather ironic that Hugh's own son John Gibson suffered badly from that very condition in WW2.
