This is an image that I have dragged out of the shoebox.
It’s a 35mm image of the main street on the Isle of Barra, with Kissimul Castle in Castlebay.
This is where my wife Dawns roots came from, as her maiden name is Dawn Shirley Elizabeth McNeil.
Once here family moved from Barra, they settled in Glasgow, as the whole line of men and women were spinners.
Dawn has been spinning now for 35 years and even dyes her own wool. ( and sells Majacraft Spinning Wheels )
