Craigag (and possibly Callop) may originally have been part of Lochiel (qv) and not Ardgour. JG Gibson discusses the transfer of Craigag in chapter 8 of Back o’ the Hill. He also has a map of Cregag farm in 1815 as a plate.

    Boyds of Ardgour
    I have a reference to Ewen Boyd in the 1693 Heath tax records for Argyll and now spot this name again within your website with references to a map coordinates.
    This is all new learning for me, and any advice on where/how to source map so can establish location of this place would be much appreciated.

      I assume this is Lakich (Lickich Ewin Boyd ther). I could not locate this precisely – which is why the map column is blank. However early lists often worked in geographical order so probable location is not just a wild guess.
      will help you locate some of the other names. Unfortunately for RHP maps you will have to go to the National Records of Scotland in Edinburgh.
