Old Skye Tales New Edition
William Mackenzie (1851 - 1935) spent his working life as a schoolteacher on Skye. In old age he wrote this fascinating account of the island, revealing his intimate knowledge and lifelong love of its geography and people.
In Old Skye Tales he records a world of local legend, folklore and superstition, and charts the changes he saw in his lifetime in agriculture, education, the Church and, of course, emigration. He recounts the history of the leading families of Skye and also the lives and experiences of the crofters, for whose rights he actively campaigned in the 1880's. Old Skye Tales is a unique and valuable record, written by a man of intelligence and sensitivity, whose life spanned both the traditional and the modern world.
