MacKay land

On my trip to the north of Scotland, we travelled through Clan MacKay land, which is in the Sutherland area of north west Scotland. In Australia, we hear a lot about traditional land-owners, so I was pleased to see the land of which I can claim to be a ‘traditional land-owner’ (my great grand-father and generations before him lived there). Of course I don’t have a claim to a single piece of this land and traditional land-owner rights aren’t recognised in Scotland because the history of change in ownership is different. Anyway, here are some photos of me and the scenes of ‘MY’ land.
