You're certainly right about the interest in family history Arnish. Several enterprising ex-pats have sussed that my Aunty (name & address withheld) will provide a fine free afternoon tea for any visitors claiming family connections. Locals be warned! Ask to see the evidence before putting the kettle on and putting the crowide on the scones! Check the Scotlands People website before you let them through the door. It's at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/ and has a lot of reliable information about family history. The Comunn Eachdraidh Nis at Habost is also well worth a visit for croft histories, etc.

Just look at the picture. It's exactly what Annie Beag and myself have been saying all along about the Westsiders. Look at the old house with its double garage? All fur coat and nae knickers!!
