    Born in 1869 into a poverty-stricken crofting community on South Uist, Angus MacLellan spent his childhood and youth with his family before

    travelling to the island to find work first in the militia and then on the farms of the mainland. His travels came to an end when he returned to

    assist, and eventually to succeed his parents on their croft on South Uist in 1900.
