Uig life in 1810

Sarah Egan of Comann Eachdraidh Uig has placed an account online of spiritual life in the parish of Uig on Lewis in 1810, as taken from "The Story of a Lewis Catechist", the history of Angus Maciver of Reef (1799-1850). The account is at and is well worth reading for the apparent 'ungodliness' of the minister (Hugh Munro 1778-1823) and his flock, at least as perceived by the writer.

Personally I don't think there's enough whisky served at religious events...! lol

(Thanks Sarah!)
