Lord Cameron of Lochiel tenth Orielensis in House of Lords

Lord Cameron studied Modern History at Oriel College and served as a Member of the Scottish Parliament from 2016 to 2024, representing the Highlands and Islands region.

Speaking of his time at Oriel College, Lord Cameron says: “My years at Oriel were some of the happiest and most fulfilling times of my life, not least because of the lifelong friendships made there, but also because it was a college that allowed students to experience academic tuition of the highest quality while also enjoying the wider experience of university life: in sport, drama, music, and much more besides.”

Lord Cameron gave the Provost, Lord Mendoza CBE, a tour of the Scottish Parliament in 2023.
