Hi Betty,

Yes it would look "double dutch" to someone who was not familiar with it.

I have lived there, know the areas & understand the layout/format on the page I posted.

It's a Croft History book which I use frequently & I can relate to it without any problem, it's my "Bible"  ;D. I have a few of them, great for references & know the gaelic & english names of places.

I believe that Emma Evans maternal grandfather Kennedy Sinclair(my 2xG.Grandfather) farmed at Sarclet,Wick according to the 1841c. That is a line that connects me to the Earls of Caithness.

I have got some pictures of the Sarclet area with ruins of crofts & it looks very bleak.It must have been an extremely hard life.

You're right Betty but Wick is a lot different from the area I posted about.

South Uist was/is a remote island in the Outer Hebrides & many moons ago there was little in the way of grocery stores or home furnishings etc.

Our families lived off the land, cattle, sheep, hens, wild birds, fish, crustaceans etc.
No such thing as coal for fires, they used peat.

I love looking at old pics & reading about my ancestors lives as it was so different to city or town life.
