I've noticed two or three names from my tree of Laing ancestors. My grandmother was Harriet Laing (Sinclair) b 1889, her father was Alexander b1859. Alexander's wife was Flora MacDonald b1863. Flora's father was, I think, Roderick MacDonald b1834 and he had a sister Kirsty who married an Alexander Monk. Alexander Monk had at least two brothers, again I think.

Again I'm not certain but I think that Roderick (aka Rory) and Kirsty's father was Ewan MacDonald b About 1789.

This would make Roderick my GG Grandfather.

The reason I'm not 100% sure is that I do most of my research online and haven't triple checked some of the links. I don't know a great deal about the Monk connection as it quite tenuous with shared GGG Grandparents. But I do like adding branches as apart from my brothers, children and grandchildren I don't have more than a couple of cousins that I have ever met.
