Jessie Mackenzie

Jessie Mackenzie was the daughter of Joseph Mackenzie, the schoolmaster at Glenquithel, Aberdeenshire. She was born about 1839, educated at boarding school and was considered to be the most beautiful and accomplished woman in the parish. She married Neil Macpherson, a Gaelic speaker from Glenelg, Inverness-shire, who had moved to Aberdeenshire working as a shepherd, and they settled on a farm at Chapelden. Their fifth child, Duncan Macpherson, eventually set up home on the west coast of Scotland in 1911, opening a pharmacy in Kyle of Lochalsh and pursuing his passion for photography.
