9 Gravir

The first tenant of this croft was Donald Macritchie (1781) and was passed down the family until they were evicted and moved to Marybank, Stornoway. Donald Macaskill, 26 Gravir took over the tenance and was eventually assigned to Angus Macaskill's nephew Donald Campbell, Glasgow, and on Donald's death passed on to his wife Maria, grandaughter of John Matheson (An Ban), 25 Gravir. After the death of Angus's wife Murdina the house was sold to Thomas Grant Shaw.
