Looking for Cregnavullin, Clachan

Postby robertsond » Sat Jun 28, 2014 7:24 pm

Was there an area near Dunskeig Hill or in Clachan named "Cregnavullin"? The 1841 census gives Cregnavullin as Archibald Darroch's residence, but I cannot find it. Do you have any idea where I might find or confirm its location?

Thank you!

Hello
If you google "A DARROCH SEARCH" "Frank Darroch" you should get to a story of another Darroch family member trying to find Archibald’s homestead (and much more). There is some detail there on its possible location. Roy’s Highlands map shows a Dunskieg near Clachan http://maps.nls.uk/geo/roy/ Archibald was married to my ggg grandfather’s sister, Mary Milloy.
Regards,
Cairn

Thanks, Cairn. I use darroch.org a lot, and have been in touch with its founder, Malcolm Darroch.

You said Mary Milloy's sister is your g-g-g-grandmother. That would make us 4th (or so) cousins.

I am writing a family history book about the Darrochs, which involves the Milloys. From which of Mary's sisters do you descend?
