We Scots ROCK, I am so proud of my heritage and thank my dad for letting me know what he had the chance to tell me, I guess it was just to be proud of being a Scot. As he was proud even tho he was born here in Australia, like I was, but, your heritage means more and makes you who you are, so, be proud. Any proud Scots may e-mail me anytime. Nicolsons especially, would be nice to hear from fellow Nicolsons.

My great-great-great-grandparents were Neil MacPherson, of Kilmore at the time, and Flora MacDonald of Aird of Sleat who married at Kilmore on 3 February 1824.  They had five children born at Aird before they emigrated to Canada in 1836, after which two more children were born.  Neil was apparently a worker from Snizort, but I believe Flora was of an Aird family.  I should like to identify her parents and also know where they all lived while in Aird.  Their oldest son was named Duncan, perhaps a clue to Flora’s parentage.  Perhaps their old house is pictured in the wonderful photo of Aird on your Aird page!

My ‘Robertson’ family moved to Tarskavaig (Crofts 30 and 31) after it was founded in 1811. Following completion of the family tree, I thought it would be a good idea to try and write up a general history of the village to try and understand how the family might have lived and survived the turbulent years of the 19th century.  Any information about: the formation of the village; crofting; fishing; kelp; black cattle; schools; churches; and the way of life in the community, would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks, David Hutchison:

An excellent site!  Congratulations to all concerned.  I was headteacher of Ferrindonald Primary School from 1976 until it closed in 1983 and first headteacher of Sleat Primary for its first year of operation in late 83 until June of 84.  It’s great to see such a portal for the rich history of Sleat.  There’s plenty of interesting history connected with the schools and the folk connected with them which could also be added in due course.  Old school registers and log books and school photos shouldn’t be too hard to find.  May the site continue to develop!

I read the book, So Far from Skye and was told that the story was about how my ancestors migrated to Australia, I am a Granddaughter of John Alexander and Elaine Thelma Nicolson, my Pop was born in Kongwak, Victoria, my Grandmother was born in Colac, I think. My father John Wills Nicolson, passed 2 weeks ago, I was told by him to be proud of my heritage, which I am and I would like to learn more, I have tried Haggis once and liked it. I live in Darwin Australia and would like to buy or learn to make haggis. Does anyone know how to make it?

I have traced my partner’s paternal ancestors to Skye, mainly Sleat and Strath areas. His Great-grandfather, Archibald MacIntosh married Mary Nicolson, born 1820 in Sleat.His grandfather, also Archibald MacIntosh, born Strath in 1857 was orphaned as a baby and was brought up by his uncle, Alexander Nicolson, a schoolmaster living in Camiscross (1861 Census).  Alexander’s daughter Mary C. Nicolson is shown on the same census as ‘born Sleat’

We are visiting Skye next week and plan to visit the places where his ancestors lived and died. How lovely it would be to find living relatives - as until several months ago we knew nothing of his Skye roots.

Your web site is fantastic - like finding a live link with the past.

my father in law Hector MacDonald (born in Skye 10/7/1913) remembers Archie Campbell who is in one of the photo’s on the gallery - Archie was the skipper of a private yacht, which belonged to the owner of the Teachers Whisky Distilery.

Hector says that Archie was the ‘presenter’ who lead the singing in his fathers church. At the time of Hector’s mothers death and the return of her remains to Sleat for burial at the church (now a private property)it was Archie who lead the singing at her funeral.

Hi such an interesting web site i was just investigating my great great great grandfathers family John Mcpherson born 1817 in the Isle of Skye and married Marion Mckay then immigrated to Mount Gambier,South Australia,Australia. They had a son Lachlan Mcpherson who married Elizabeth Seebohn and had 11 children. I was after more information on John Mcpherson.

Just started to research my maternal grandmother’s family. Her mother, Margaret Gillies, emigrated from Sleat to NZ in 1874 along with her 7 siblings and her parents, Archibald and Ann Gillies. Archibald’s father was Peter Gillies and his mother Annabella MacKinnon. Ann’s father was Hugh MacDonald and mother Christina Cameron. I can’t find out anything beyond this. They were all Sleat people and probably married at Kilmore church. Any information would be great. I suspect that Peter and Annabella would have been born late 1700’s, as with Hugh and Christina. I think Hugh died 1881 in Sleat.It was amazing finding this site- I feel as if I have discovered my roots.

Fantastic website….very well designed and helpful. Recently found my grandmothers family originate from Strath and Sleat (Robertson’s). I have posted an email to group seeking further information and providing my research thus far including old photos of Skye in her album.

I hope to make my first and probably the last trip to Skye this fall.  My great grandfather Neil McLure never lost his desire to return to his home from Canada.  I have heard that if you are decended from the Isle of Skye you will always hear a voice calling you home.  I hear it.
Neil was born January 1855, the son of Alexander McLure and Peggy McInnes.

Posted by Miguel Mintzer Elder on 04/06/2010 at 01:29 PM

Thanks for this site! I am descendant of John Elder and Colin Elder, who run the stores of the Isle of Oronsay between 1780 and 1810, and leave at Teangue. Macdonald and Elder were emigration agents. I believe that this Macdonald was James Macdonald from Skeabost. Both, John Elder and J. Macdonald were succefull businessmen, with some ships (“The Riflemen”). A brother of John, Major General Sir George Elder, enlisted in the army as a rifleman, at Skye (1798).

I am so happy to find your site!
In 1977, my friend and I traveled to the UK from California, and through advice from a complete stranger, found our way to Sleat.  We both still feel it is a piece of heaven there!  I never will forget the brief time we spent.

We traveled from the ferry at Armadale to Stonefield, Tarskavaig, in a taxi van driven by a Mr. MacDonald.  He told us along the way that most people in that area were either MacDonald or MacLeod!
The lovely two-bedroom guest home b&b;was Gillean House (at that time called Gillean View) in Stonefield.  I’m assuming the picture on this site is of the same house!  It was run by a lovely older couple, the MacLeods!

I do hope someday I may return there.  Let’s say I plan on it!!!

All the best to the lovely folk of Skye,

Hallelujah! A site to Skye. So many of us came from Skye but cannot get the whole connection. We really wish all of you Mac’s would join us in our DNA quest to connect to family. It would be most appreciated.

Thanks very much. A useful, interesting & informative site. Helped me to find the village of MORSAIG that Marion McKinnon was born in in 1840 to Alexander & Flora McKinnon.
Marion found her way, in her early 20s, to East Lothian nr Edinburgh where she married John Hastie in 1866.  I have yet to discover whether she made this journey on her own or with her family.  Either way the mind boggles when one remembers that there was effectively no transport as we know it today and road conditions would be primitive to say the least.  They certainly grew them tough on Skye.

Posted by Rosemarie Martin on 06/04/2010 at 10:28 PM

I would be most grateful for some information. My great-grandmother was born in the Parish of Sleat in about 1851. Her name was Annabella MacDonald, Her father’s name was Neil MacDonald (crofter). She married a Royal Engineer called Samuel George Ford in 1875. She had a brother named Duncan. Her death in Cape Town, South Africa in 1936 was mentioned in a local Isle of Skye newspaper. I have been struggling to find her birth records or anything about her and her family. I have really enjoyed seeing the old photographs on this site. Thank you.

Congratulations on a great site! I have really enjoyed looking through it. I have been researching my family tree from Australia. My GG grandfather Duncan Macpherson was born in Bracadale in c 1816. His parents were Angus Macpherson and Sibilla Macdonald. Duncan married Mary Macdonald in Sleat on 24 Jan 1848. Duncan and Mary plus two children, John and Mary lefy for Geelong, Victoria, Australia on board the Hornet in 1854. They had a further four children in Australia and eventually settled around the Murray River region and had many descendants. I am travelling to the UK later this year and will definitely visit the area.

Kind regards

Maternal ancestors came from Isle of Skye.
Duncan Robertson b abt 1818, Sculimas married Catherine McInnes b abt 1821 Heast, Strath,in 1849, Broadford, Strath.
Emmigrated to Australia in 1852 on board the “Georgiana” with their two year old son Donald and Duncan’s siblings Lachlan born abt 1825 and Margaret born abt 1828 both from Moorlands.
Duncan, Lachlan and Margaret were the children of Neil Robertson born c 1790, tailor from Invernife Strath and Jane McPherson born c 1790.  I think other children could be Alexander, Mary, Peggy, Farquhar .
Catherine nee McInnes Robertson was the daughter of Lachlan and Marion McInnes, crofters from Isle of Skye.  Her grandfather was Findlay McInnes, crofter also from Skye.
Would like to make contact with descendants researching these families.

Other children who stayed Catherine (B: 1813, possibly died young?), John (B: 1814, D: between 1863-1872, possibly married Janet Bruce, 1838, Sleat).

Lovely web pages!

i have discovered while researching family tree that my descendents came from Aird in Sleat.  I have managed to trace Bruce family of Alexander, John, Lachlan, Murdoch,Kenneth and many of their sisters who lived in Aird from early 1800s till around 1901’ Last known address was for John Bruce, who resided at 13 Aird.  I have been unable to find any further trace of family and would be delighted if anyone knows of anyone with the family name of Bruce still residing in Aird or Sleat.
I have greatly enjoyed your website which has given me insight into the lives of my ancestors.

Dear Members of the Society
I am trying to find out about my family and our history. My family are MacDonalds from sleat though I think specifically Tarskavaig. I think I’ve traced them through from my grandfather Donald Martin MacDonald born in Glasgow in 1904 to Angus MacDonald (1767). Angus’ grandson was Jonathon MacDonald born in 1826.
Can anyone give me any information about their lives?
thanking you in advance.

My husband’s great grandfather was Alexander Robertson (fisherman) born on Sleat Skye in 1823. He married Catherine MacPherson in 1857. Alexander’s parents were Archibald Robertson (cottar)and Christina McKinnon. Catherine’s parents were Ewen MacPherson and Mary Robertson.

good site for information

Further to my earlier posting I have been able to go back to the mid 1700s.  In doing so I have come up with a number of death certificates for various Donald Macdonalds in Sasaig and nearby between 1857 and 1900.  Only one needless to say is the relevant one so if you want to let me know if you are looking for such an ancestor I will pass these on to you.

My earliest ancestors so far are Ranald Macdonald b 1766 and his wife Margaret McGillivray probably in Kilmore and Donald Macdonald b 1850 and his wife Marion Macdonald in Sasaig.  Also Samuel Campbell b abt 1760 and his wife Anne McGilliveray of Sasaig.

My wife is descended from MacDonalds in Calligary, and also from Kennedys there, Kellys there, and Robertsons. Her great grandmother Chirsty Macdonald, nee Kennedy widow of Roderick Macdonald, died at Calligary on 1st March 1930, aged 84 years. She was a daughter of Malcolm Kennedy and Marion Robertson.

This site is most interesting.

My great grandmother Eliza MacDonald died in Kilmore in 1892.  She was then Mrs Allan Maclaine and in her early thirties.  She had two small sons John my grandfather who was 5 and Allan who was two.  Her husband had been bankrupted from his business in Oban a year earlier and he appears to have taken John to Glasgow where he worked as a joiner.  The younger brother Allan remained with his maternal grandparents in Kilmore ie Allan and Ann Macdonald until he died of peritonitis aged 18 in 1907.  This was such a sad outcome that I would like to know where he is buried.  Can someone give me details about likely burial places?  I doubt they could have afforded headstones.

The website, in particular the pictures, give a real flavour of the area, makes me more determined to get there in person one day.
I am particularly interested in the seafaring history of Sleat.  My ancestor was a shipmaster there by the name of Alexander macDonald, living in Tokavaig in 1833, then in Armadale in 1861.

I came across your wonderful website whilst googling for pictures of Ardvasar. My father, Alastair Kennedy was born in Ardvasar village in the early 1930s, and the family still had roots at ‘Rosemount’, the house above Ardvasar shop (which the Kennedys ran until the late 1980s) until my nan Molly Kennedy was re-housed just up the road in 1992.

I’ve done a fair amount of family research and have found this site a valuable source of information - thank you.
