Dòmhnall Ghiogain - A Log Book of Memories

Tolsta couple Donald Maclean (Dòmhnall Ghiogain) and his wife Anna Dhànaidh entertained sailors from all over Scotland when they visited Mr and Mrs Maclean in their hospitable home in Vancouver. Many of their maritime visitors wrote their names, addresses and some information about their ships in the log book that the Macleans kept. We are reproducing the names of some of the Tolsta sailors, who visited them between the early 1930s and the late 1950s.
