Is this a record? Graham Clark has been in charge of three FE colleges - though not simultaneously, we should add. Having led Angus College, he had a lengthy spell at Falkirk where he had as many battles with the unions as with the Scottish Office.
Now he is presiding over Inverness College, where his fondness for Munro-climbing should find a more convenient outlet. Could there be a fourth principalship, however? First gauleiter of the University of the Highlands and Islands perhaps?
Mere speculation, of course.
