Think there is a cemetery at Dunbeath too (which would be for Knockally, Balnabruich, etc)

but found this one the web:

"There used to be a cemetery desides it as the name of the adjacent farm - Ballachly - indicates. Some time after 1860 a cloudburst caused a wall of water to come down the Houstry Burn and washed out a number of coffins from the cemetery. Afterwards the farmer ploughed up the land of the cemetery bringing ill luck on himself and his family. The exact site is not clear today."

But there is a new one, and if Neil Sutherland died in 1865 it may be post this.

There is also a link to the Caithness Memorial Inscriptions (pre 1855)

Which might help  :)

Cheers!

I'm definitely planning on going to Badbea, especially as I've just read a book about a Sutherland family moving to New Zealand in the 1840s from there. My parents went there last year I think and really want me to go, and I will. ;)

You lucky thing, you are going to have a fabulous time. Badbea is shocking and amazing at the same time, it made me cry, and I didn't even have direct family that actually lived there like you do...but it really shows the Scottish Spirit.

See you Friday Bryce

PS either bring a laptop or heaps of loose paper to NRH and all the family info you can ;)

Would it be better to book NRH to guarantee a place? Also apparently there are works on the train line between here and Edinburgh so I'll need to make sure I can definitely make it there in time! I'll find out ASAP.

You can bring a packed lunch if you want, but I usually pop out to Burger King for a quick bite and run back in (don't want to waste any time now)  ;D

If the train is going to be a problem do you want to drive to Morningside and leave your car there (free parking) and we can catch the bus in together?

You can ring NRH and see if there are places left to book but I am assuming they are all booked out (they usually are this close to the date), I went last week and got in at 1pm for a half day and there were heaps of spaces left, so I don't think it will be a problem, they leave a stack of places for people to just turn up on the day. If you do book tho can you book places that we can use a laptop at (preferrably the South Search Room)
