Although Sir Ludovick Grant failed in his
endeavours to get pecuniary compensation from
Government for his own and his tenants’ losses in
connection with the Revolution, certain privileges
were conferred upon him which in that age were
not without value. On 15th June, 1693, Parliament
passed an Act appointing “ane free fair,” to be
called “Louis Faire” after himself,1 to be held at

the church of Kilmore, in Urquhart, on the last
Tuesday of August in each year, and another, to be
called “ Lady Fair,” in honour of his wife, to be held
yearly, in November, at the same place. To these
fairs all might “ resort for buying and selling of
bestiall and all sorts of merchant commodities what-
sumever that shall be brought thereto be any
persones ;“ and the Laird and his successors were to
receive “ the haill tolls, customes, emoluments,
profits, and dueties belonging or that by the laws
and practiques of this realme belongs or appertaines
to any in the like caices, to be collected and
ingathered be him, his tacksmen, servants, or col­
lectors, to be appointed by him for that effect.”1
On 28th February, 1694, his claims upon the King
were further acknowledged by the grant of a crown
charter erecting his whole lands, including the
Barony of Urquhart, as well as the Barony of
Corrimony, the feudal superiority of which he
possessed, into the Regality of Grant.2

1 Acts of Parliament, IX., App., 93.

Urquhart, viz., Bordland [Borlum] with the fortalice thereof, 6 merkland of Kill
St Ninian with the mill, 6 merkland of Kerrogar, 6 merkland of Drumboy, 3
merkland of Wester Bounload, 3 merkland of Mid Bounload, 3 merkland of

ness, erected of old into one free barony called the Barony of Urquhart,
reserving to their Majesties and their successors the property of the forest of
Clunie, with the shealings thereof ; and also the forty shilling land of new
extent of Bunload, in the barony of Urquhart and shire of Inverness, and the
advocation, donation, and right of patronage of the benefice of the Chancellory
of Moray, comprehending the churches of Inverawin, Kirkmichell, Knockan-

Sir Ludovick, also, notwithstanding his troubles
and losses, found opportunities of acquiring new
estates. He purchased Abriachan from Alexander
Fraser of Kinnerras in 1695, and Culnakirk and
Clunemore from John Grant of Glenmoriston in the
following year ; and having thus consolidated his
possessions in the district of Loch Ness, he made
them over in 1699 to his eldest son, Colonel Alex­
ander Grant, on the occasion of the latter’s marriage
with Elizabeth Stewart.1 The Laird retained his
other estates until his death in 1716.

Alexander Grant was a man of considerable note
in his time. He represented the county of Inverness
in Parliament for several years, took an active part
in the negotiations for the union with England, and
was one of the Scottish commissioners who signed the
Articles of Union, in 1706. He was a brave soldier
and a capable officer, and saw much service in the
wars of the Duke of Marlborough, under whom he
received rapid promotion, until, in 1711, he was
raised, “for his loyalty, courage, and experience,

to the rank of brigadier-general. In January, 1715,
he became governor of the fortress of Sheerness, and,

doch, Urquhart and Glenmoriston, and parish churches of Cromdaill, Advie,
Abernethie, Kincardin, and Dutchell, rectories and vicarages of the same, in
the diocese of Moray, and shires of Inverness and Elgin and Forres, united 1 o
the foresaid lands of Easter Bounload in the barony of U’rquhart and shire of
Inverness ; and in like manner the lands and barony of Corriemonie, com­
prehending the £4 land of Corriemonie, and £4 lands of Morall, and £8 lands
of Four Meiklies, 40s lands of Lochletter, 40s lands of Auchatemrach, 40s
lands of Diviagh, 40s lands of Little Cloyne, and the half lands of Cloyne
Meikle, and 40s lands of Pitchirrellcroy, extending in all to a £27 land, in the
lordship of Urquhart and shire of Inverness.”

on the outbreak of the Jacobite insurrection of that
year, captain of the castle of Edinburgh. On the
19th of August, he was appointed lord-lieutenant
of the counties of Inverness and Banff.

During the latter years of the reign of Queen
Anne, the Tory or Jacobite party made little attempt
to conceal their intention of bringing about the
restoration of the Stewarts on her death. Her some­
what sudden end, however, in August, 1714, found
them unprepared ; and, with few exceptions, they
appeared to acquiesce in the accession of George the
First. The Earl of Mar, who had great influence in
the North, offered his services to George, and obtained
from a number of Highland chieftains, including The
Chisholm and Iain a’ Chragain, Laird of Glenmoris-
ton, a letter entreating him to assure the Govern­
ment of their loyalty to His Majesty.1 But these
professions were only intended to deceive. In
August, 1715, the Earl held the famous Hunting of
Braemar, at which it was resolved to rise in arms
for James, son of James the Seventh. Glengarry
was present at the Hunting, and so also, it is said,
was his neighbour, Iain a’ Chragain. They were
old companions in arms, for they had fought side by
side for James’ father at Killicrankie. The Laird of
Grant and theBrigadier were enthusiastic Whigs,
but that circumstance did not prevent their clans­
men and tenants taking up the Stewart cause.
Under the banner of Glengarry were found Iain a’

Rebellion of 1715, 5.

Chragain and his men of Glenmoriston, as well
as a company from Glen-Urquhart, under the
command of Macdonald of Aughtera, with Alex­
ander Cumming, a brother of Dulshangie, and
William Grant, a son of Corrimony, as his lieuten­
ants.1 Alexander Grant of Shewglie, son of that
Shewglie who fell at Corribuy, privately exercised
his influence in favour of the Stewarts.2

The story of The Fifteen may be briefly told.
Mar unfurled his standard early in September, and,
marching southward, seized Perth, which he made
his headquarters. He was opposed by John, Duke
of Argyll, commander-in-chief of King George’s
forces in Scotland. Glengarry and Glenmoriston
were sent into Argyll with five hundred men,
to raise the Jacobites of that county, and seize
Inveraray. They met with no success, and in
November they joined Mar — whose forces had
already been increased by the arrival of the
Chisholms and other northern clans—in time to
take part in the battle of Sheriffmuir. In that
strange conflict the right wing of each army was
victorious, and the left defeated ; and both sides
claimed the victory. But while the immediate issue
was doubtful, the result of the battle, and of the
defeat, on the same day, of Mackintosh of Borlum’s
army in England, was to break the back of the
insurrection. Mar’s army melted away ; and, not­
withstanding the appearance on the scene of James

himself, the Rising of the Fifteen speedily came to
an end. During its course Macdonald of Keppoch
entered Glen-Urquhart with three hundred men,
committed great outrages, and carried off a large

The conduct of the men who had gone from
Glen-Urquhart to join the Jacobite army gave their
landlord, Brigadier Grant, excessive annoyance, and
he vowed vengeance against them. “ By what
information I can get from some prisoners taken at
Dunblaine,” he wrote from Stirling to his brother,
Captain George Grant, on 22nd December, “ I find
there were some of the Urquhart men with the
rebels. The company was commanded by McDonald
of Aughtera ; Delshangie’s brother, Alexander
Gumming, was lieutenant, and Corriemonie’s sone
William Grant, were officers [sic]. I have a list of
severalls of the private men which I need not send,
since you’l gett them from Clury [the factor of
Urquhart] or Sheugly. I hope whatever coms of
others you will, with my other friends, take care
that these men of myn be secured ; be shure you
take no baile for them. If they’r not able to main­
tain themselves, I desire you’l at my charge lett
them have a penny worth of bread a day, and that
without respect of persons or relations ; for, as far
as it’s possible for me, I will prosecute them and
endeavour to make examples of them, that so
future ages shall stand in aw of following there
footsteps. For if they should escape, I thinck

others would be the readier to imitate them.
Besides, with me its ane agravation of their guilt
that they joyn’d the Laird of Glengarry ; and for
that reason I hope my friends will be at some pains
to secure these rebells, but lett [it] be so cautiously
manadg’d that the execution of it may be all at the
same tym. I'm told that John Grant in Divach has
been a very turbulent fellow on this occasion. I
therefore desire that he may be keept prisoner, and
not allow’d his liberty upon baile, as I hear he
purposes ; and at the same tym lett him be warn’d
out of what land he possesses of myn again [against]
the next term. So give your orders to Clury anent
it.” The Brigadier himself soon followed this angry
letter, and placed soldiers in the houses of Erchless,
Brahan, and Borlum near Inverness. His visit to
Urquhart was not so disastrous to his offending
tenants as they had probably expected.

In the Act of Attainder passed by Parliament
after the suppression of the insurrection, John Grant
of Glenmoriston, The Chisholm, and Alexander
Macdonald of Glengarry, are named among those
who had taken up arms against King George, and
were to stand and be adjudged attainted of high
treason if they did not surrender themselves for
trial on or before 1st June, 1716. Glengarry sur­
rendered, and was pardoned. Glenmoriston and The
Chisholm held out ; and in their cases the attainder
took effect, and their estates were forfeited. Inver-
moriston House was given to the flames by the
Whig soldiers, and, as in the days of the Revolution,


Iain a’ Chragain had to betake himself to the
natural fastnesses of that glen which, legally, he
could no longer call his own. A cave in the face
of a rock overhanging the river Moriston, near the
fall of Eas-Iararaidh, is still pointed out as his
favourite retreat until the King’s general amnesty
in 1717 made it safe for him to appear in public.

The estate of Glenmoriston—now once again
Crown property — was, together with the lands
of The Chisholm, the Earl of Seaforth, and
other attainted landowners, placed by Parliament
under the management of the Forfeited Estates
Commissioners. These gentlemen did not find their
task an easy one. The tenants, in most cases,
adhered loyally to their old proprietors, and refused
to pay rent to the representatives of the Crown.
The story of Donald Murchison, Seaforth’s cham­
berlain, collecting the rents of Kintail, and sending
them to the Earl on the Continent, is well known.
In a similar manner Iain a’ Chragain practically
continued to enjoy his old patrimony. The great
bulk of his estate was found by the Commissioners
to be in the occupancy of his near relations, under
rights which it was difficult to set aside. His
brother, Patrick, held the lands of Coineachan and
Bealla-Do, under a wadset for 2000 merks Scots.
Patrick Grant of Craskie had a similar right to
Craskie and Tomchraskie, in security of 3000 merks.
Angus or Æneas Grant possessed Duldreggan under
a wadset for 3000 merks. John Macdonald held
Dulchreichart in security of 500 merks. The Laird’s

brother, Duncan, had Wester Innerwick, in security
of 1000 merks ; his son-in-law, Alexander Grant of
Shewglie, tenanted Glenfad, and retained the rent
on account of the interest of two sums of 2000 merks
and £200 Scots due to him ; and, to crown all, his
own wife, the daughter of Sir Ewen of Lochiel, was
tenant of the home farms of Invermoriston and
Blairie in virtue of some right granted to her before
the Rising, as a safeguard, probably, against mis­

In addition to these legal difficulties, the officers
of the Commissioners ran considerable risk of per­
sonal violence in the performance of their work ; and
when their surveyor-general, Sir Patrick Strachan
of Glenkindy, came north to make enquiry concern­
ing the lands of Glenmoriston and their rental, he
did not venture within the bounds of our Parish, but
held his court on the Green of Muirtown, near
Inverness. In response to his summons, the Glen-
moriston wadsetters and tenants met him there on
29th October, 1718, and on oath declared the rents
and duties payable by them. As so ascertained, the
total yearly value of the whole estate amounted
only to £691 16s 8d Scots, or £57 13s 02/3d sterling !2

Rumours of a Spanish invasion in the interest
of the Chevalier, encouraged the Glenmoriston
tenantry, led by their old Laird and his sons, to
continue to defy the Commissioners ; but their hopes

were almost destroyed when, in 1719, General
Wightman, marching from Inverness by Strath-
errick, Kil-Chuimein, and Glenmoriston,1 defeated
the Spaniards in Glenshiel. Still, however, no rents
found their way into the coffers of the Commissioners,
and so, to end the farce, two resolute Eoss-shire
Whigs—William Boss of Easter Fearn, ex-provost
of Tain, and his brother, Robert Ross, one of the
bailies of that burgh2—were appointed factors on
the estates of Seaforth, Chisholm, and Glenmoriston,
in October, 1720, with instructions to bring them
effectually under Government control. The factors
began quietly by serving the tenants with demands
for payment of their rents. The notices were treated
with contempt, and they therefore resolved to visit
the estates in person. Starting from Inverness, on
13th September, 1721, under the escort of Lieu­
tenant John Allardyce and a company of the Royal
Regiment of North British Fusiliers, and proceeding
through Glen-Urquhart, they reached Invermoriston
“after some adventures,” and there held a court on
the 21st, to which they summoned the wadsetters
and tenants. A few only obeyed. Easter Fearn
acted as baron-bailie, or judge : his brother took the
part of prosecutor, and formally demanded payment
of the rents of the crops for the years 1715 to 1721,
inclusive. Some of the tenants admitted that the
amounts claimed were due, and the baron-bailie gave
judgment against them. Others swore that, not­
withstanding the forfeiture, they had paid their

1 Jacobite Lairds of Gask, 461. 2 Taylors History of Tain, 89.

OLDEN TIMES IN THE PARISH.                235

rents to the old Laird—a few adding, by way of
excuse, that they were “ stressed thereto.” The
cases of those who had paid to the Laird were
referred to the decision of the Commissioners ; while
the absent tenants were “held as confessed,” and
judgment given against them.1

But these proceedings were of little avail. Among
those who watched them was Iain a’ Chragain’s
second son, Patrick, a young lad of spirit, who bore
no love to the gentlemen of Easter Ross, and whose
great ambition was to cut short their factorial career.
When they left Invermoriston, with the intention of
visiting Strathglass and Kintail, Patrick, with a few
kindred spirits, took the short route by the Braes of
Glenmoriston to the West Coast, and informed
Donald Murchison of their approach. Murchison,
who had had some military experience as an officer
in the Jacobite army, resolved that they should not
enter the bounds of the Seaforth country ; and, with
about three hundred men, and accompanied by
Patrick Grant and his companions, he crossed the
mountains in the direction of Strathglass, and lay in
wait for them in the heights of Glen-Affric. The
factors, having held courts in Strathglass, started
with their escort for Kintail. But their progress
was stopped at Ath-nam-Muileach, where they were
suddenly confronted by Murchison’s party. After
an exchange of fire, Easter Fearn and Murchison
met between the lines, with the result that the
factors retraced their steps, leaving, it is said, their

commission in Donald’s hands. In the skirmish,
Easter Fearn and his son Walter, and several others,
were wounded. Walter succumbed to his injuries,
and his body was carried by the Fusiliers to Beauly,
and buried within the walls of the Priory.

With the view of punishing the perpetrators of
this outrage, the authorities went to some trouble to
ascertain who were present with Murchison. On
11th and 20th November, Robert Gordon of Haugh,
Sheriff-Depute of Inverness, held courts of enquiry
at Inverness, at which witnesses gave the names
of such as they had recognised—among them being
Patrick Grant, and Donald Boy, Achnaconeran, son
of the Glenmoriston ground­ officer.1 Similar courts
were held by John Baillie, also a Sheriff-Depute, at
Guisachan, on 16th November, and at Duldreggan
on the 20th.2 But these enquiries had no result.
The Glenmoriston men escaped the punishment
which was intended for them, and Patrick Grant
lived to acquire the estate of his forefathers, which
he enjoyed till his death, at a great age, in 1786.3

Ath-nam-Muileach—The Ford of the Men of Mull—is now printed for the
first time. According to tradition, it was the work of a Beauly woman, who
witnessed the return of the factors, and the burial of Walter Ross :—

In the year 1724, Government sent General
Wade into the Highlands to enquire into the state
of the country ; and, as the result of his report and
recommendations, he was commissioned to disarm
the Highlanders, and to carry out certain sug­
gestions which he had made. On 15th September,
1725, the men of Glenmoriston, Glengarry, and
Strathglass, made a show of surrendering their arms
to him at the then newly erected barrack of Kil-

Chuimein, or Fort­Augustus ; but they concealed
their best weapons, and only gave up such as were
of little use. Wade, following the example of
Cromwell, placed on Loch Ness a galley, capable of
carrying fifty or sixty soldiers ; an independent
company of Highlanders, raised by the then effu­
sively loyal Simon, Lord Lovat, was placed along a
line stretching from Invermoriston to Loch Duich,
with the object of preventing the passage of cattle-
lifters from the countries of the Macdonalds and
Lochiel ; and, most important of all, those military
roads which still bear the General’s name, were
gradually constructed—one of them running from
Fort­Augustus across the hills to Aonach in Glen-
moriston, and thence westward to Glenelg.

Notwithstanding all these measures, the Forfeited
Estates Commissioners found it impossible to make
the lands under their charge of any value to the
public, and their sale was at last decided on. In
most cases friends took means to secure their restora­
tion to the old owners, and the kindly clannishness
of the Gael precluded competition by outsiders.
After more than one attempt to dispose of the
estate of Glenmoriston by public auction, the Com­
missioners at last sold it privately to the Laird of
Grant’s second son, Ludovick, a young advocate who
was at the time known as Ludovick Colquhoun of
Luss, he having succeeded to that property through
his mother. The deed of sale was signed on 3rd
December, 1730. Ludovick’s entry was held to
have been at Whitsunday of that year, and the

price was £1086 sterling, with interest at five per
cent. from that term till payment. The price was
paid on 21st July, 1732, when the Barons of
Exchequer conveyed the estate to Ludovick, who
really acted for behoof of old Iain a’ Chragain and
his family. “ There seemed,” says Mr Hill Burton,
in reference to the forfeited estates,1 “ to be a tacit
combination through the community to enclose the
property with a net­work of debts, burdens, and
old family settlements, through the meshes of which
the Commissioners could only extract fractional
portions.” In the case of Glenmoriston, Iain a’
Chragain and his friends had arranged matters so
well that the Commissioners extracted nothing,
save arrears of feu-duty due to the Crown. No
duties had been paid since the time of Killicrankie,
and the arrears now amounted to £75 3s 4d.2

In May, 1733, Ludovick conveyed the estate,
not to Iain a’ Chragain, who was still under
attainder, but, to his eldest son, John. He, how­
ever, retained the right of superiority of part of
Duldreggan, Inverwick, Blairie, Over Inver, and
Nether Inver, in his own person.

Young John Grant, the new proprietor, died on
3rd December, 1734. Iain a’ Chragain survived till
30th November, 1736. Born in 1657, when Crom­
well ruled, Iain saw the Restoration of the Stewarts,
in 1660, and their final expulsion in 1688. He
fought for them at Killicrankie in 1689, and saw

his mansion destroyed and his country pillaged for
his pains. He fought for them again at Sheriffmuir
in 1715, after which his residence was again given
to the flames, and his estates forfeited. He was
essentially a man of strife—eager, bold, and fearless ;
and in his younger days, when there was no fighting
to do, he gave scope to the natural bent of his mind
in a long litigation with the Laird of Grant about
his family's right to Balmacaan. In the estimation
of his people he was a perfect chieftain ; and
traditions which still survive show how deep the
impression was that his deeds made upon the
popular mind, and with what genuine affection his
memory has been cherished even to the present day.1

1 By his second wife, Janet, daughter of Sir Ewen Cameron of Lochiel,
Iain a’ Chragain had ten sons and five daughters, and at the time of the lady’g
death in 1759, their descendants numbered 200 [Scots Magazine]. As a remark­
able instance of the linking of distant ages by the lives of individuals, it may
be mentioned that Iain, who was born in the days of the Commonwealth, saw
his grandson, Colonel Hugh Grant of Moy (son of Grant of Shewglie), who
was born in 1733, and survived till the year 1822. A sculptured stone covers
the grave (in Invermoriston churchyard) of Iain a’ Chragain and his son
John, bearing the following inscription :—“ This stone is erected here in
memory of the Much Honoured John Grant, Laerd of Glenmorison, who
dyed Novr. 30, 1736, aged 79 : and his son, John Grant, Younger Laerd of
Glenmorison, who departed this life ye 3d Decemr., 1734, Aged 35 years.”
Adjoining is the tombstone of Iain’s wife, on which there is the inscription :—
“ This stone is erected here in memory of the much Honoured Janet Cameron,
Lady to the Honoured John Grant of Glenmorison, Daughter to the Honoured
Sir Ewen Cameron of Lochiel, who departed this life, Febry. 1759, aged 81
