On a recent trip I visited Clachan Duich graveyard and found a headstone which could have family connections.It read "Erected by Catherine Macdonald and Flora Macrae now residing in Australia. To the memory of their mother Catherine Maclennan who died in July in 1814 age 36years and of their father Duncan Macdonald who died on 23rd February 1859 aged 89 years and of their stepmother Margaret Macrae who died on 11th July 1864 aged 80years. All died at Letterfearn." As this monument was erected many years later I am wondering if their are any written records or records giving permission to erect it. Hoping someone may have info.

My request to the council burial dept. in Portree, for information on the burials in the old part of Clachan Duich met a negative response. However this stone interested my colaberator in recording the Clachan Duich stones, Tony being also a Macdonald/Macrae descendant and an Australian resident. From Margaret, d 1864, death certificate her parents are Duncan and Christina, both Macrae. Duncan (husband of Margaret), parents Donald Macdonald and Mary Mackay. His daughter by first marriage to Catherine Maclennan, Catherine (co. errector of the stone) married John Macdonald. I have note of 2 generations of their descendants. If you would like to compare or expand for me then my email is tina_gr@btinternet.com.
