1467 Manuscript

An excerpt:

"Erracht in Lochaber is at the foot of Glen Loy, five miles north of Fort William, about halfway between the foot of Loch Eil and the foot of Loch Arkaig. In the fifteenth century the seat of the Cameron family was still on an islet called Eilean na Craoibhe at the foot of Loch Eil. The captains of Clan Cameron then moved to Torcastle c. 1527 and to Achnacarry c. 1650.9  Torcastle is on the west bank of the Lochy, three miles south of Erracht; Achnacarry is further north, near the foot of
Loch Arkaig." [Source]
