Hillary Sillitto was born and grew up in Scotland, graduating in Physics from St Andrews University and Applied Optics from Imperial College. He had a very interesting career in high-tech systems engineering, based in Scotland but travelling widely.
After retiring he wrote a systems engineering book, “Architecting systems – concepts principles and practice”, and co-authored a visionary book on Scotland’s future, Scotland 2070 Healthy Wealthy & Wise. The only political positions he admits to are pro Scotland and pro his grandchildren.
