Wilson practised as a solicitor. Unfortunately his first wife died 18 months after they were married and he went travelling in the Middle East, subsequently writing 'Travels in the holy land' and other books. Eventually he married 'An English lady of good family' from London. When Wilson died she had this domed octagonal Moorish kiosk built, in the style of Sepulchre monuments from his beloved Palestine. No wood, iron or lead has been used in its construction, all joints are concealed. The family arms of Rae and Wilson are depicted in white marble inside. Wilson adopted the middle name of Rae when he inherited money from an uncle of the same name.
Scotland - Meeting Crazy Westie Lovers on Skye [01:32]
We were starting our first full day on Skye when we came across these incredibly friendly Westie lovers. As we were heading towards the Storr this couple literally flagged down our tour bus. They were out in the middle of nowhere with their two little Westies. The man mentions that the one dog in the pram (a baby stroller to Americans) has been very ill and that this is the only way he gets around. Everyone enjoyed this cute diversion.
