Hi SamMary and Zephyr,
 John Neilson, brother of James Beaumont Neilson, was my ggg grandfather. I have done extensive research on the Neilson family but have no pictures of any of them or their properties. I shall follow this thread with great interest. Are we related in any way?

Mollance was the family home of my g. Great aunt Marion(Neilson) and her niece Aunt Mary(Steel) for many years, and Aunt Mary died there in 1920. I have an extensive research on the family of Neilsons who were fascinating.. If I can help anyone, please ask. Likewise viewing any pictures of these places mentioned or photographs of family members would be most welcome by me as I have none.
      Good luck to everyone in their searches. Best wishes, Islay

Yes, they are confirmed there on the census, and Mary Steel's death certificate gives Mollance as her place of death. Will follow this thread with interest. Best wishes, Islay
