The Postal Address Book doesn't mention Ballagan (which I suspect would have been a farm) but it shows the post code for Ballagan Cottages which is IV12 5XS.  To see the site of the cottages enter this code in the search box of Get a Map and enlarge.

If you look on the National Library of Scotland maps website, you will get free access to old maps including Ordnance Survey 6 and 25 inch to the mile maps of the area

Hi, I have just got my grandfathers birth certificate which has him as being born at Ballagan. This was in 1926 And his surname is Tough.
