Alec Macaulay and the Land Raids

Shared from Island Voices/Guthan nan Eilean Retired policeman Alec Macaulay talks in Gaelic to Archie Campbell about the land raids on the west side of North Uist that took place after the First World War, in which his own father was involved. A serious business, but not without some lighter moments, as Alec relates…

Alec was recorded for the project, “An fheadhainn tha laighe sàmhach”, run by Comann Eachdraidh Uibhist a Tuath with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
