The Census record is a transcription only - original image not available.
There are no images of any Scottish census records online (unless someone has uploaded any to sites), they have to be purchased at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk
Well aware of non availability of original images of Scottish Census records other than via scotlands.people.

Others may not be aware i.e. a general statement  ;)

Looking at Craggan as identified by Forfarian,it is not very far from Corriemulzie Lodge.Perhaps the 1841 address is from that area.

Is that one not in the parish of Edderton rather than in Kincardine?

Unfortunately, I don't have access to the original 1861 census images to "walk" the area and confirm the location by picking out dwellings listed on the same sheet/adjoining sheets and identifying them also on the map.

Not sure how access to SP census images works but is it possible to view the census sheet and and those either side to identify entries in the same locale?

Ah, thank you, that's one of the maps I would have looked at if I had had my paper maps to hand.

I think you are right. If you carry on upriver from Craggan, past Corriemulzie Lodge, you eventually arrive at Loch a' Choire Mh˛ir, where there is .... Coiremor Bothy!

Just south of Duag Bridge is a feature marked as Druim a' Bhathaich which could be anglicised as Drumvatich, though as pronounced in Gaelic Drumvaich would be closer.

So we now have locations for all of the places named in the 1841 census enumeration district:
Corimore at NH305887 - photo at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/782636
Corriemuillie at NH323951 - photo of area at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1343518
Drumvatich at NH332971 - view from it at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1343455
Luibconich and Croick Manse as previously discussed
And Craggan at NH341980 is just a mile north of Drumvatich.

To see where any of these are just type the map references (NH......) into the 'Gazetteer/NG Ref' box on the top left at http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoom=6&lat=57.2056&lon=-2.5489&layers=6&b=1

Looking at the OS Sheets 20 and 21 together, it looks like a long and weary trek from Craggan to Croick via Luibconich. I find it difficult to understand why Corimore, Corriemuillie and Drumvatich were listed in the census with Luibconich and Croick, because the first three are much closer to Strath Oykell than to Strath Carron.

Yes, but it costs 6 credits to view each page.

finding the church at Oykell???
« Reply #26 on: Monday 17 July 17 04:41 BST (UK) »
Hi! Thank ou so much for your help in locating the church in Alness. I will certainly try to visit it when I visit Scotland. May I ask advice on the church at Oykell. I see one at Oykell bridge - my great grandparents were married in Oykell in 1862.Their certificate shows they were married in the Scottish Free Church....would Glens Church have been the only one in or around oykell at that time?
Many thanks for your assistance.....I'm new to Ancestry and find so much to learn!!!!
