I have been doing occasional research into my family tree and I think I may have found a link to your query about the Macraes and Murchisons.
My grand mother was called Julia Macrae. She came from Glenshiel. She had a brother Duncan and two sisters Ellen and Hannah. Hannah according to my research was born in 1876. Hannah was my great aunt. Their parents, my great grand parents, were Donald Macrae (1844 - 1923) and Janet Murchison (1843-1930. My grandmother, Julia lived in Dingwall and died in 1954. Her sister, my aunt Ellen lived in Glenboig, near Glasgow. We used to go and visit her when I was a child. I don't know when she died. I didn't know that she had a brother Duncan and a sister Hannah until I was doing my recent research.If this is the same Hannah, then we must be distantly related! Hope my info is of some help.
