Neil Macpherson on Beinn na Caillich

The negative for this photograph is entitled The Cairn, Beinn-na-Caillich. The boy waving the flag is almost certainly Neil, son of the photographer Duncan Macpherson, as they often walked together in the area around Kyle of Lochalsh and on Skye. There is more than one hill in the locality named Beinn na Caillich (hill of the old woman) but the one above Kyleakin on Skye, at 733m (2396ft) is the most likely location for this photograph. Neil was born and educated in Kyle. He died on 21 May 1944, aged 24, as a result of injuries sustained while serving in the 16th Army Ordnance Depot in Kent
