Photographs of Dr. Calum Bartlett: 1970 – Barra pt 2

More of my Dad’s wonderful pictures of my family on holiday on Barra in 1970. You can see pt. 1 of 1970 by clicking here.

Here’s me, on what will always be known as ‘Dolina’s Rock‘ to us all. The rock where my cousin Dolina would sit and play guitar and sing. This is just outside the cottage at Ault / Ersary.

Anyone who knew my Mum would know she hated the sea. That fact makes this picture pretty funny. Mum at the helm of our boat.


The plane just landed on the beach. Our grandfather, Dr. Samuel Bartlett first had the idea to land planes here. It is still the island’s airport and I think the only airport to have it’s timetable dictated by the tide!
