This picture shows Alison with our three children Catherine Angus and Eilidh , outside the splendid Kilmuir Church in the Isle of North Uist. Earlier in the week we took a day trip to Uist and took the time to stop at this wonderful church . It is significant for us as a family as almost 59 years ago ( on 18 June 1957) , Alison’s father and the children’s grandfather the Rev’d Alexander Macdonald was ordained and inducted as a minister in this church. as the minister of Kilmuir and Paible Church of Scotland.
More information of Alasdair’s own thoughts and reflections of this can be found here
