Roddy Macdougall

Roddy is the founder of the Facebook group Skye and Lochalsh Memories which he started in 2017. Roddy’s family has been on Skye since the 1940s, with his Uncle Alexander being manager of Talisker Distillery and after he retired, his son Lachlan took over as manager. In 2013 Roddy retired after being a professional HGV driver for many years. He has great knowledge of the Skye and Lochalsh area and the broader Highland area. He has earned the reputation as “off grid Roddy” when necessary: visiting little townships where roads are single track and show the true nature of Skye crofting and its culture.
