Alexander Carmichael Watson

Today, 100 years ago, Alexander Carmichael Watson passed away at the age of 80. In his time, Carmichael Watson travelled the length and breadth of the Hebrides, amassing a vast collection of folk-lore. The Carmichael Watson project have been working hard to digitise this collection, which you can access here.

Anyone who is near one of Carmichael Watson's abodes is invited to take a picture and share it with the project on its Facebook page.

Alexander Carmichael Watson was born and lies buried in the Isle of Lismore, a few miles northwest of Oban.
