Dunvegan Disruption: The Rev John Mackechnie, country minister and scholar of the Gaelic

In the early 1970s, there was a sharp divide over Mr Mackechnie’s pastorship at the Kenyon Church and his scholarly credentials. The CBC’s Mary Lou Finlay produced a program on the affair. At the next public meeting of the Glengarry Historical Society at Dunvegan’s DRA Hall, Thursday, 13 April 2017 (7:30 PM) David Anderson will show extracts from the CBC documentary followed by the community, literary and scholarly framework surrounding it.

Refreshments will be served. Members $5, welcome guests $10.
