Mary and Neil Macpherson were the children of Duncan and Margaret Macpherson. Duncan was the chemist in Kyle of Lochalsh for most of his professional life, opening his business there in 1912. Duncan's father had originally come from Glenelg, but moved to the east coast as a shepherd, and Duncan and his siblings grew up there. Margaret MacIver was from Kyle, and they spent their married life in their house, Glenquithel, named after Duncan's home village. Mary and Neil were brought up in Kyle, going to school there, and in Plockton. Neil was tragically killed in an accident in Kent in 1944 while on military service. Mary, after studying in Aberdeen, Cambridge and Geneva, taught for many years, retired to the family home in Kyle, and died in 2007.
