Carradale House and estate

Postby Morag » Fri Aug 05, 2016 3:00 pm

Hi, I'm researching my family through from Kilchoman on Islay to Carradale and would appreciate any help or suggestion of where I might find information. The McPhersons were employed by the owners of Carradale House from 1881 through to 1887, my great-grandfather as a forester and two of the daughters as house servants. Can anyone tell me who the owners/occupiers of Carradale House might have been at that time. Thank you.

Hi,

I only know that the estate owner prior to the Mitchisons was Austin MacKenzie
