Audio cassette recording of Margaret MacDonald of Cornaigmore talking to Maggie Campbell in 2000.

Margaret MacDonald talks to Maggie Campbell in 2000 about buying ‘An Airigh’ in Cornaigmore in 1962 and using it as a holiday house until they took up permanent residence in 1981, the changes she’s seen in the shops, self-sufficiency, and crofting practices; Margaret also talks about how children today have less love of nature, how Mrs Campbell of Garaphail kept the Sabbath, the neighbouring croft that once belonged to novelist Alistair Maclean’s family and how milk was retailed in lemonade bottles.
