Fraser-Mackintosh, Excerpta … Vol II No 943 (1819) refers to Laggan with the islands called ‘Orassary’, ‘Nabarnach’ and ‘Nacharish’ in Lochailort. I think ‘Orossary’ will be for Oronsay which is a Norse name commonly given to islands which are joined to the mainland at low tide. This is the island now called Eilean nan Trom at NM 7279. ‘Nabarnach’ is now Eilean nam Bairneach also in NM 7279. I am not sure about ‘Nacharish’ although Eilean Buidhe (NM 7379) is the next most likely islet.

    I have seen reference to Carnibol in some of the Clan Ranald papers, would that be a form of Arnipol?

      John, I don’t think I’ve ever seen this so hesitate to comment. But neither can I think of another Clanranald property called Carnibol.

  2. John Loughney says:

    Hi Denis,

    Link in the website is for the Clanranald paper:

    10 Jun 1782
    Precept of removing in causa John McDonald of Clanranald and his curators against Donald McDonald, pretended tenant of Ardnafuaran, and John More McGillivray, pretended tenant of Carnpoll.

    – Note I have a copy of the original, if you are interested.

    I have a question for you, in your Arisaig & Morar book, you mention an 1748 Judicial Rental drawn up by David Bruce? Do you have a reference or document number? I would be most interested in getting a copy of that.
