History, Secrets and Guilt – a memoir by Cal Flyn.
In brief while holidaying at her parents’ home in Skye a few years ago, Cal discovered that her ancestor Angus McMillan, born and raised on Skye, and later a great pioneer of early Australia, had in truth led a series of violent massacres of the indigenous population over there. She discovered that he was known by another name: The Butcher of Gippsland. Driven to piece together his and her family’s story, Cal retraced McMillan’s journey, to look for answers and seek out the representatives of the Aboriginal group he had terrorised.
Here story resonates with people of, and visitors to, Skye as some of them will be related to the Highlanders who left for Australia.
