Angus (c1785-1877) was the son of John Macleod and Catherine Macarthur. Angus occupied the area of Croir where Tigh a Chaolais subsequently stood. Angus is mentioned in a letter dated 1833 by Thomas Mansfield, a man of business for Seaforth Estate.
The family were mentioned in the 1841 and 1851 censuses as living at Borrowston but by the 1861 census states that he had returned to Croir, was married to Mary Macaulay and was living with his two daughters and an unmarried sister. Angus and Mary had seven children. The 1871 census mentions that three grandchildren were also living in the household; two of whom went on to die of smallpox.
