Allan MacLeod

Allan Beag, born 1832, was the son of Allan Bàn MacLeod and Rebecca MacLeod of Siabaidh. About 1854 he moved with his widowed mother to 2 Urgha, where he was working as a domestic servant in 1861. By 1871 he had returned to Berneray, living with his brother Alexander’s household on 15 Ruisgarry (Trealigarry), working as a fisherman and then a farm servant. He remained unmarried until his death in 1905.

Allan Beag was remembered in two sound recordings from 1974, made by his great nephew Angus MacKillop, as a strong and quick-witted fellow. The two recordings are Naideachd mu Ailean Beag à Beàrnaraigh and  Naidheachdan beaga mu chàirdean an fhiosraiche...
