The last school log books for the islands of St Kilda and Mingulay have gone online as part of a joint effort between the National Records of Scotland (NRS) and the Tasglann nan Eilean Siar (Hebridean Archives).
These books were written by the teachers and give a fascinating insight into life on these Scottish islands. The Mingulay log book dates from 1875 to 1910 and the St Kilda log book covers the years from 1901-1930 - that takes us right up to the date when the island was evacuated.
They are interesting documents to browse through for a real glimpse of the way people lived on these remote islands. Well worth a look...
They can be viewed for free at http://www.cne-siar.gov.uk/archives/collections.asp
