Hi Sue, Not sure if we're on the same track but I'm just starting on my Family tree (McRae/Crawford)and wonder if my John and Mary are the same as yours! I have a MacRae Family tree record which says that John's wife Mary's maiden name was Cummings. Does that mean anything to you? My records show that John, born 1843 arrived on the "Ticonderoga" in 1852. I won't go into more details at this time as my info could be another family. Kintail seems to be the place the family lived. I have a daughter and a cousin who also visited the Eilean Donan Castle over past years and its apparently an amazing old place. Enjoy your trip and maybe we'll have further contact if we can make a connection with the info we each have.
Kind regards,
Bev Tschopp

Hello Bev,

Thank you for your response. I have not come across the surname of Cummings that you refer to as John's wives maiden name.
I am a descendant of John McRae of Camuslinie and Isabella McRae of Torlysich.I believe that he was born in early years of the 19th century. Isabella his mother was the daughter of Farqhar MacRae

There are quite a lot of McRae's and yes it is difficult as so easily we can skip into another portion of the tree.
I am so looking forward to my time at Eileen Donan.
Kind regards

Sue Stancombe
