A Remote Eleven

This was one of the most remote residences in Britain. It's at Mulhagery, in The Pairc on the south-east coast of the Isle of Lewis. The Gamekeeper's House was once home to a family which grew with the births of eleven children. Norman Macdonald (1830) and his wife Isabella Thomson (1833) had Catherine (1851); Duncan (1853); Norman (1854); Mary Ann (1856); John (1860); Donald (1862); Marion (1865); Murdo John (1867); Isabella (1874); Norman (1876) who died in infancy and Norman (1878).
