Read about the hapless Lady Grange in 'The History of Skye' by Alexander Nicolson.
Added by on 01 May 2014.
Margaret Macaulay's book "The Prisoner of St Kilda" tells the story of Lady Grange in graphic detail from her murdering father to her kidnap in 1732 by her husband's friends, her desperately uncomfortable life in various locations including St Kilda and her last two years in Waternish, Isle of Skye where she is buried.
