Assynt people - Catherine Macleod
Sister of Johan Kerr, nee Macleod, who married Alexander Kerr and settled in Achmelvich. Kate moved to Glasgow where she ended up becoming well known as the Matron of the Blind Asylum. She had her own pew in Glasgow Cathedral and took tea with the minister of the Cathedral every week or so. Not bad for a little Gaelic speaking girl from a poor family!
