WHO DIES 27TH NOV 1816 AGED 90 YEARS
ALSO HIS SPOUSE JANNET WHO
DIED 19TH FEB 1816 AGED 71/91 YEARS
ERECTED BY THEIR SON
IN REMEBRANCE OF DUTIFUL AND
Allan who erected the stone was a well to do man. He lived in Scarinish and for many years had tenancy of the Scarinish Hotel. Allan ferried rocks from Mull for 7 years, for the Skerryvore Lighthouse so would have met and possibly knew the stonemasons who may have made this stone for him as it has a style of the stonemasons stones that can be seen at Soroby.
Skerryvore was built in the 1840’s so if these dates of death are correct, and they may not be as they are very hard to read this stone was erected at least 20 years after his parents death.
