It says; Donald was joint tacksman of Garrabost in 1726 but left the following year to take possession of Ranish along with his son Alexander).

He had three sons; Murdo (died in Kirkton of Lochalsh - he left descendants in Slumbay, Lochcarron), Roderick (died in Lewis but descendants live in Attadale and elsewhere on the mainland) and Alexander (settled in Ireland and left descendants in County Down)
