Has anyone any information on the tenants of Balnaclach (various spellings), Golspie in the period 1750 to 1800. According to the book by Margaret Wilson Grant on Golspie, there were Munros there in 1750. In 1762 Thomas Mckenzie was of the croft when he died, according to his grave inscription. His probable son, John McKenzie was described as a 'late tenant' of Balnaclach when he died in 1792. He was married to an Isobel Munro. The croft seems to disappear in the 1790s when it was presumably absorbed into the main Dunrobin farm. Are there any records of tenants for this period. John's son William became a Farm Grieve, possibly at Kirkton,where he was living when his sons, John Justin and Roderick were born.
