Norman MacAskill

Norman, born 1945, was the eldest child of John MacAskill and Isabella MacQuarrie of 23 Borve, and later 13 Ruisgarry (Sunhill).

Norman was passed 22 Borve from Alexander MacMillan, and his father’s crofts in 2006. He also owned 'house 16' Quay for a while. Norman lived at 1 Cùl na Beinne for a few years before he passed away in February 2012.
