A tragedy at St Kilda

Further to the information on the death of Donald Macdonald in the previous post, I can add that an article in the Scottish Field Magazine explains that the accident occurred when the men's boat capsized when it got caught by a wave whilst returning from tending to sheep on Dun. Norman John Gillies says that his mother, who lost her two brothers Norman and John in the drowning, named him after her brothers.
