Personal Catches of Eye

Monday 27 June 2011: Built by Calum MacLeod

On the Scottish island of Raasay is this little road.

But it was built by hand, by one man, with a few hand tools, and that wheel barrow.

He started the road because the population of the north of Raasay was dwindling, and the local authorities refused to build it. It took him 10 years, and Calum and his wife were the last inhabitants at Arnish, the end of the road, when it was finally finished.

One day old Calum was found dead, calmly sat in his faithful wheel barrow.
