Dr Wilson is married with two children. His family owns a variety of animals including three horses and an adopted sheltie called Nimrod. Most weekends will be involved with family and horses, with a relatively high proportion of mud involved!
Peter Wilson plays the bagpipes and has done since the age of 11. He was taught by John ("Jack") Crichton at George Heriots School in Edinburgh winning national titles during this time and played for Torphichen and Bathgate Pipe Band in the early 1990s when they won Scottish, British, European and Champion of Champion Trophies in Grade II and won promotion to Grade 1.
Dr Wilson also enjoys playing golf - being brought up in the golf heaven that is otherwise known as the East coast of Scotland this is hardly surprising.
