Raasay: The Island and Its People

By Norma Macleod | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements
My interest in the history of Raasay was sparked by my father, Norrie Gillies, talking about the place and its people. His keen interest in my findings kept me looking for more. The late Dr Alasdair MacLean, Aird Bhearnasdail encouraged me to believe that I could write a book. Without his advice, based on his extensive knowledge of the North West of Scotland, I would not have attempted to do so. Many others have helped me with information and to source documents. I would like to thank various Government Departments, and their staff, for their help:
Dualchas, Skye and Lochalsh Area Museums and Heritage Service, the Highland Council, Portree - Mary Carmichael and Nancy Gatz.
Highland Council's Libraries - Morna MacLaren and David McClymont at Portree: Mr A. MacLeod, Genealogist, Inverness and Mr R. Stewart, Archivist, Inverness.
SEERAD, Scottish Executive Environment and Rural Affairs Department, Portree (formerly DAFS).

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.
