Museum

The tallest Scotsman, and the tallest recorded giant was Angus MacAskill. He was born on the island of Berneray on the Outer Hebrides in 1825. He stood 7 ft 9 in tall. (Berneray is visible from Coralach on a clear day) Angus died in 1863. Young MacAskill was said to be of normal stature, but in entering his adolescence he began to grow rapidly and by his 20th year had attained 7 ft 4 in, eventually reaching 7 ft 10 in within another year or two. His early adult weight was 580 pounds. His shoulders were 44 inches wide, and the palm of his hand 8 inches across and 12 inches long; his wrists were 13.5 inches in circumference; his ankles measured 18 inches in circumference; by 1863 he was wearing boots 17.5 inches long. His feet were probably around 16 inches long and 8 inches wide. He had deep-set blue eyes and a musical, if somewhat hollow voice; and a mild and gentle manner. Despite his size he was well proportioned.
