Calbost - History and Personal Memories

This section brings together documents written by Angus about the history of his native village, Calbost, from its founding around 1780 to its abandonment towards the end of the 20th century. It includes information about Planasker School in neighbouring Marvig, this being the school attended by Angus and other Calbost children. Some of the documents in the section contain detailed statistical information in the form of lists and tables, while others are essays of a personal nature relating to Angus’s own upbringing and the changes he witnessed in Calbost during his lifetime. This section does not include Angus’s detailed histories of individual crofts, or his compilation of information about Calbost places and place-names; these can be found in the next two sections.
