Thanks also to Mary Gillies and Charlie MacLeod, both originally from Raasay, and to Mr D. R. MacDonald: Morag MacLeod: Roger Miket: Mr W. D. H. Sellar and Martin Wildgoose for their specialist knowledge. Any errors are my own. I am most grateful to Anne and Andrew Gillies, Raasay. Their patience, over a long period, in dealing with my frequent requests for help is much appreciated.
Over the years many other people have also answered my many questions. To each of you my sincere thanks.
This book is all the richer for the photographs that are included in it. Many thanks to all those people who allowed their photos to be used.
