Born in Argyll in 1849, the Reverend Donald MacCallum was radicalised by what he saw of the Clearances and became the crofters’ and cottars’ champion. This was a rare stand for a minister at that time dependant as they were on their landlord for manse, glebe and living.

He served in Loch Geàrr, Arisaig and Skye, where he became the only Highland minister of that era to be imprisoned for his political beliefs. He came to Tiree in 1887 but was forced out after 18 months by the Argyll family who refused to support him.

The crofters of Tiree erected the cairn in his honour. The inscription read: ‘Tùr McCallum, 1st July 1889. Bas no Buaidh. Death or Victory.’
