Angus McPhee

Angus McPhee information

Another story that cropped up while at Sacred Heart was about Angus McPhee, who died in 1997 and was resident at some point at the old hospital opposite Sacred Heart home in South Uist. This is now a bunkhouse and it is where the team stayed for a couple of nights on our trip.

His story of wartime trauma, his silence of voice and his weaving of grass had echoes of our project themes and hand memory woven through it, excuse the pun. It formed an interesting side discussion with Cathy Lane over a lunchtime meeting too.
