I am currently trying to find out more about Knoydart and hopefully go there in 2016.


I go to Knoydart fairly regularly. If you need any advice on how to travel there or where to stay, or any general questions, Iíll try to help. Just send me a PM.

I may be wrong and I don't want to teach anyone to suck eggs but I have a feeling there may be some confusion creeping into the translation of patronymics here and there that could throw out the father to son succession. It is confusing as there are Rorys/Ruairidhs in the family but Iain or John Roy is neither Iain son of Rory nor John Rory but Iain Ruadh, that is red (haired) John. Good hunting one and all. Angus

Stacey, I can help if you still need it. Like Tal I am a descendant and know the history and ancestry (as recorded in Glengarry County) well. Take care.

There is a very good book called 'The People of Glengarry', Highlanders in Transition, 1745 -1820 written by Marianne McLean. It is published by McGill-Queen's University Press.
It gives a lot of detail about the McDonnells from The Scottish west coast & who were cleared from there to Glengarry, Ontario.
