Johanna Macleod

Johanna Macleod

Johanna, daughter of Kenneth Macleod and Peggy Macarthur, 6 Calbost.

Johanna perished aged 15 when she lost her way coming back from the nearby house of Angus Smith on a Sunday evening. When it was realised that she was missing, the whole village turned out with paraffin lanterns but without success. Although she was lame she had walked about a mile or more, narrowly missing several houses and she climbed a fairly steep hill. On the following day her body was discovered in the snow on the hill near the boundary of croft 8 Calbost and the extension of croft 2 where there is a small natural cairn marking the spot.
