Harris Placename
« on: Saturday 22 August 20 16:57 BST (UK) »
This is from an 1875 marriage at Stein in Waternish both were from there and both lived on Harris.  She was the schoolmistress on Scarp and he a merchant at the attached which I cannot find.  I would assume it would be close to Scarp but it appears not.

Thanks,

Don
