Newspaper cutting about a letter from the Marquis of Tullibardine, which was read out at the annual gathering of “the natives of Tiree” held in Glasgow around 1905. The letter/article regards Tiree’s inaccessibility and the lack of a good pier, how one might be funded while the island is up for sale, and whether the Congested Districts Board (1897-1911) could afford to pay for it. The Duke of Argyll attempted to sell Tiree in 1902. Several ministers born on Tiree are also mentioned: Rev. John MacLean, Glasgow, Rev. Hector MacKinnon, Campbeltown, and Rev. Charles Lamont, Saltcoats.
