My late grandfather, Alexander Livingstone worked for Macbraynes at the turn of the 20th century and was based in Stornoway.The family moved to Plockton when my late father also Alexander was 9 years old,my father's brother Murdo was the manager at Mallaig for Macbraynes for many years and my fathers sister Greta married Chris Munro the vet for Lewis and Harris(all deceased). |
My 2nd cousin Murdo Livingstone who resides in Stornoway and has done our family tree has a lot of information regarding the Livingstone Clan. I went over with Murdo to Lismore to meet the Clan Chief at his home and we were made very welcome and stayed for over three hours before catching the ferry back to Oban.
I live in Fort William not too far from Lismore and pass it often on my way to Oban. I have no relatives here in Fort William on my fathers side of the family apart from my Mother Barbera(85), sister Gillian(Mackinnon)and Alexander Livingstone(Fort William)and finally my twin brother David Livingstone who is married and settled in Sweden to a girl from Finland(Leyla Livingstone).
My Grandparents and most of my Livingstone relatives are buried in the church graveyard in Plockton and some are buried in Kyle.
I found this forum (GREAT IDEA)by chance and look forward to reading about many more Livingstones.
