Mappy Monday: Seil Island

 
Old Parochial Record (from scotlandspeople.gov.uk) showing Sarah McPherson's baptism in 1793.
I wish I'd know this before I visited this area of Scotland two years ago. The baptism record of Sarah McPherson* provided me with an exact location, Camislaich, in the parish of Kilbrandon and Kilchattan in the old county of Argyleshire, Scotland. And an old map pinpoints the spot, a small group of houses on the island of Seil. Gotta love those Old Parochial Records.
