Total Ulva 14½d 1630 Since most of Mull and Gometra are converted at 1d:1¼m it seems reasonable to suppose the same for Ulva. 15d of 1553 would be 18¾m whereas only 15m are stated in 1509. If Ulva was 16d this would mean that Ulva + Gometra would be 20d or one ounceland.
Gometra 4d or




4d(1390), Godmadray(1390). 5m Gowmoutra with islands of Longa & Plada (Treshnish Isles) in ER XIII p 214 of 1509. 5m(1541). 5d Gometra with Oskamul (which was probably 1d) in 1674.
Ballichtrich 2d 1751 =Lower township
Ballicloigh 1d 1751
Ardskipnish 1d 1751
Total Gometra 4d 1741 4d=5m at 1d:1¼m.




In AVR (1751) all of McQuary of Ormaig’s properties are valued in merklands not pennylands which I think is a mistake – and certainly out of context.
