Scotland’s leading authority on Gaelic language, tradition and culture has died aged 89.
Academic and author Dr John MacInnes (Iain MacAonghuis) spent his life studying and championing Gaelic history, folklore, music and spoken word, and was considered “the last of the native scholars”.
He was born in Uig on Lewis, but grew up on Raasay. As well as his native tongue, he was fluent in many other languages.
John was inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame in 2015. Read about him here
