Tiree minister involved in Skye church ructions in 1886

The Reverend Donald MacCallum is probably better known on Tiree for his defence of crofters during their struggle for land rights in the 1880s. This extract of a newspaper article by Martin MacDonald in 1997, indicates that he seemed to stir things up wherever he went. The cause of the ructions in Skye was the election of a new minister for the Established Church congregation (his opponent, Rev. John MacRury, was married to a Tiree girl - Flora Brown of Mannal House).
