I note your comments about Molinginish. The village was finally abandoned in 1963/4 when the last of the two MacDiarmid brothers left, after one died. Incidentally the land is part of the North Harris Trust Estate which is in community ownership and is managed by staff in Tarbert who are presumably now the equivalent of factors. I am collating material on the history, genealogy, placenames, as well asd family anecdotes for future publishing on a website, but this will take a bit of time yet.
