Angus MacLellan
Frobost, South Uist

The tradition bearer Angus MacLellan (Aonghas Beag mac Aonghais ‘ic Eachainn ‘ic Dhòmhnaill) is among some of the most prominent and memorable storytellers of his generation, and was recorded by both John Lorne Campbell and Calum Maclean of the School of Scottish Studies in the 1940s and 1950s. His storytelling was well known in the community, and he is widely acknowledged to be one of the last Scottish Gaels on record capable of reciting the epic tales both from the Finn and Ulster Cycles, tales which can be traced back almost a thousand years to medieval Irish manuscripts.
