About

Welcome to the View from manse !

This is the stunning view of East Loch Tarbert  in the Isle of Harris from the manse  on the shore.

 This is the personal Blog of the Rev Ian Murdo Macdonald .  I am privileged to be serving God as the Minister of Tarbert Church of Scotland in the lovely Isle of Harris in the Western Isles of Scotland. I am equally privileged to be married to my wonderful wife  Alison and to be the dad of three lovely children, Catherine , Angus and Eilidh.    We moved to Harris in June last year having spent fourteen wonderful years in Ness in the Isle of Lewis. We long to see God move in our beautiful islands and in the land of Scotland once again.

The views and opinions in this Blog are my own and not those of the Congregation or the Church of Scotland.
