Stayed In Quidinish - a Memory of Quidinish.

My father Ewen Mackay was born in Quidinish. He came to New Zealand after the Second World War and died in Dunedin in 1958, aged 35 years. In 1991 my brother Ian MacKay, his wife Pauline and I travelled to Harris to meet our family and see where our father had spent his early years. My thoughts of our time there are tinged with sadness as my uncle Allan MacKay and aunt Rebecca Gillies (my father's siblings) have since passed away.
