Guy Robertson Wiki – Guy Robertson Bio
Guy Robertson, 59, had been dropped off by his partner Angela Wood for a walk in the park before meeting her father later. His brother Grant asked a friend to post an explanation on social media yesterday, confirming the tragic circumstances that unfolded in the park. He wrote: “Guy’s death was the result of a tragic, indeed bizarre, accident that, as you know, took place around 1.30 p.m. yesterday afternoon in Dawsholm Park.
The tragic incident, last Sunday, sparked a major rescue operation in Glasgow’s Dawsholm Park after the businessman fell down an embankment.

Guy Robertson Incedent
“On realizing this was the wrong route instead of retracing his steps and proceeding along the upper path Guy decided – again confirmed by a witness – to climb the embankment to reach the upper path using trees and vegetation to assist his climb.
“As Guy had scaled most of the embankment, one of these branches would appear to have given way resulting in him falling a considerable distance down the embankment before dropping onto some boulders at the river’s edge.”
The account says that “on any other day” Guy would have emerged unscathed from the fall. However, it appears he sustained “irrecoverable injuries” after striking his head on a tree branch or rock.
The statement added:”A female GP, jogging on the other side of the river witnessed the accident and immediately forded the river to attend to Guy who was clearly very seriously injured and already in a state of deep unconsciousness. Another witness phoned the emergency services.
“Over 30 members of the emergency services attended, first to treat Guy and then to safely move him to an ambulance and thereafter to hospital.
“Guy passed away peacefully with family by his side at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital earlier this afternoon.”
Mr Robertson was managing director of Glasgow-based GRA Independent Marketing and Advertising and was well-known within media circles.
He previously ran the Guy Robertson Partnership, dissolved in 2011, which had a £4 million account with Toyota GB.
