Angus Mackenzie

Angus Mackenzie

Angus (born 1847) was a son of Norman Mackenzie and Matilda Ross Macleod. Angus was a shoemaker by trade. After one of his cows was involved in an accident and he had to slaughter the animal and sell the meat among his friends, he realised the potential in butchering and he set up in business as a farmer and butcher in Stornoway where he did very well. His descendants continued to farm at Melbost but the family butcher's shop on Point Street in Stornoway closed down.
