Barra - Shops & Castle by Larry Lingard-Davis

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

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 )

I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    Another beautiful shot Larry and I just love listening to the history. Maybe there’s a need for a family history group out there on Red Bubble.

  • I don’t think so….
    That’s all they need… Another Group.
    And definately not genealogy…. It’s far to much and far to big …..
    It would become a nightmare…?
    I hate to think of what the boys at Scotlands History Group have let themselves in for ?
