14 Ruisgarry (Trealigarry)

14 Ruisgarry (Trealigarry)

The croft at 14 Ruisgarry was created in the 1850 relotting of Ruisgarry by the Harris Estate. The area it lies within is known as Trealigarry (Gaelic: Trealaigearraidh), probably meaning 'meadowland of the bypath or shortcut'. 

14 Ruisgarry was allotted to Murdo Ross. In 1854 he moved to North Uist and the croft passed instead to his sister-in-law Marion Shaw. In 1864 she moved to another Ruisgarry croft, and croft 14 passed to Donald Munro and following his death to grand-daughter Catherine MacAskill, then her son Donald MacLeod.
