If a couple were married 1825 Lochcarron 1825, they have several children and move to Applecross, later they are found in Fodderty. How would they have travelled across Country at this time?

I have a similar query. My gggrandfather Donald lived in Strathpeffer (Rose Cottage) and was married to Anne (nee Macleod). She was from Inchvanie. Strathpeffer and Inchvanie are both in the parish of Fodderty. Donald's father was Kenneth but I don't know where he or for that matter Donald came from, before Donald settled in Strathpeffer. Donald was apparently a Master Blacksmith. I have seen a few of your other postings which refer to a Donald and Anne and a Fodderty connection and wonder if we might be talking about the same people.

If you think we might be then my email address is

Don't be put off by the spelling of my surnameas I believe my ancestors pre my grandfather (also Kenneth) spelt it macrae if indeed they could spell it at all as I know they spoke Gaelic and not English
