New Friends


New Friends The Urras is very pleased to see that we now have Friends in Canada as well as the United States of America. Two of the grandchildren of William Donald MacKenzie, known as the 'Bard of Shader' have become Friends. William Donald MacKenzie's wife, Mary-Donald Alister MacKenzie, is buried in the graveyard at Eaglais na h-Aoidhe in a small iron grilled enclosure near the door of the church

Why you should become a Friend – by becoming a Friend you are supporting the on-going consolidation, preservation and maintenance of one of the oldest and most interesting historical sites on the Isle of Lewis. Eaglais na h-Aoidhe is of prime historical and archaeological significance, being one of the best preserved pre-Reformation churches on Lewis.

In addition, as a Friend you will get free access to in-depth reports and minutes of Directors' meetings in the Friends' Section of the website, you will receive regular newsletters and you will get discounts on future publications.
