Chirsty Mary MacLeod

Chirsty Mary MacLeod, known as Chrissie, was born in 1908, the eldest child of Roderick MacLeod and Mary MacAskill of croft 11/12 Ruisgarry (Quay). The family moved to 9 Backhill when Chrissie was about eight years old, and later croft 9 Borve. She was a pupil at Berneray School between 1916 and 1923, before working as a nurse in Glasgow. She married John Fleming from Strathaven.

Chrissie owned 'house 4' Rubha Mor, which passed to her nephew after her death. 

Chrissie was a generous contributor to the School of Scottish Studies sound archive. The recordings are available on the Tobar an Dualchais website. A convenient way to access them is through her biography page
