Visitors from Skye

This week we were delighted to receive visitors from the Isle of Skye to look at some of the Carmichael Watson papers. Four postgraduate students from Sabhal Mòr Ostaig’s MA in Material Culture spent a few hours with us looking at the resources available to them for their studies and seeing some of the work which we are doing to make these resources more widely available. The visit was arranged by our own Donald William, who is one of the lecturers in Material Culture and who was taking the students around various archives and museums, assisted by his SMO colleague Professor Hugh Cheape.

Pictured from left to right are: Andrew Wiseman, Gordon Cameron, Julie Fowlis, Donald William Stewart, Emily Edwards and Gillebride MacMillan.
