A note from the group admin:

By the West end of Canna he is referring to the townships of Tarbert and Garrisdale. The MacKinnon of Corichatachan was Lachlan MacKinnon of  Corichatachan, Isle of Skye. At this time the island of Canna was under the ownership of John MacDonald of Clanranald whose mother was Flora the daughter of MacKinnon of MacKinnon. The MacKinnons were also Jacobites.
