Neil Macpherson

Neil Macpherson, son of Kyle chemist and photographer Duncan Macpherson, is photographed here posing for his father, probably in the family home, Glenquithel, in Kyle of Lochalsh. He regularly wore his kilt, as here, and can also be seen in the framed photograph on the wall behind. From a young age, Neil appeared in many of his father's photographs as he often accompanied him on walking or cycling excursions in the area. Neil was born in 1919 and brought up in Kyle, but was tragically killed in 1944 as the result of an accident at just 24 years of age, while serving in the 16th Army Ordnance Depot in Kent.

This photograph is included in his father's book "Gateway to Skye", which is also dedicated to Neil. Duncan Macpherson explains that his son had been very involved with the production of the book. Despite the fact it was not published until 1946, it was already typed and bound in 1939, and Neil had read it before his untimely death. The photograph is titled in the book "Ian Neil Macpherson".
