Having written a short history of my Great Great G/Father Walter Scott and shared it with the family I had 2 questions left to answer. Was there a family connection with John Scott who he worked for in 1850s at Gesto and why did he go to the Black Isle (Raddery Estate) in 1894/5. Your gravestone websites have answered these queries. Walter was a shepherd on Skye/in Garloch and Black Isle. 1826 -1917 a long life! One daughter Mary was married to a Macpherson and lived at 7 Ferrindonald.
