Innes of Edingight
The arms of Sir Malcolm Innes, 16th of Edingight,  impaled with those of the Lord Lyon on the badge of a Knight of the Venerable Order of St John of Jerusalem and encircled first by the circlet of a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order and then the golden Thistle Collar as King of Arms of Order of the Thistle. Behind the shield, the batons of a Lord Lyon are displayed in saltire and reversed.  From the base and ascending along the dexter side are the badges of the positions he held as Lyon Clerk, Carrick Pursuivant, Marchmont Herald and, finally, Orkney Herald Extraordinary. Across the helmet of a knight with the palm crest of the Innes rising from his chapeau as feudal  Baron of Crommey is depicted his personal badge of a bullrush and crescent. The dexter supporter is that of  the Office, and the sinister supporter is Sir Malcolm's (heraldic) greyhound.  The hound partially obscures the arms of Joan, Lady Innes, who predeceased her husband.
