The National Trust for Scotland has started posting excerpts from the diary written by Alice MacLachlan between 1906 and 1909. Alice's husband Peter was a minister, and the current set of entries, for February 1906, describe their life in his forst post, in the village of Garve, north of Inverness: the weather, the visits (young Hugh, recently promoted from a child's smock to trousers, comes to show off), the reading of improving books.
What Alice does not yet know is that in August Peter will take up a new posting, on St Kilda.
