In other parts of Mull the term ‘obolatam’ usually meant a ½d land. In Ross the records indicate that it was used to describe a ¼d land. There are four places in Ross (Edderaloch, Lewone, Upper and Lower Creich) which are given as ‘obolatam’ in 1587-8 but which are only farthing-lands in the 1672 Decreet (HP I p 254). Further, in the 1587-8 document the renders due from ‘obolatas’ are lower than those due from ½d lands.
