Singing at Durness Primary School

Durness Primary School children with Dolly MacDougall at the piano. This photograph was taken at Durness Village Hall in December 1968. Dolly MacDougall ran the 'wee room' at the primary school and her husband, Rev John MacDougall (a Skye man), was the parish minister. Rev MacDougall was a chaplain to the 2nd Seaforths and was killed in Normandy in 1944.

Durness is a small crofting community in northwest Sutherland. It lies approximately 13 miles northeast of Laxford Bridge and close to the famous Smoo Cave. Archaeological evidence of human settlement in the area goes back 5000 years and includes evidence of Pictish farming settlements from 2000 years ago.
