Parish notes

This united parish was situated partly in NAI and partly in INV up until 1891. In that year no change was made in the county boundary but the NAI part of the parish was transferred to the NAI part of Cawdor (Shennan 145-6). This consisted of: Ballachrochan (farm), Quillichan (farm), Kincraig, Lagreach and Ballaggan (farm) + fishings (ibid. 154). All of these subjects are now in Cawdor parish NAI.
