Donald McPherson (MacPherson) of Isle Ornsay Sleat Son of Archibald McPherson

Looking for any ancesors/siblings of my GGGrandrather Donald McPherson (MacPherson) born 15 Apr 1856 or 1857 in Isle Ornsay in the parish of Sleat in the County of Inverness, Scotland. Donald moved to Victoria, British Columbia, Canada in approximately 1892 where he married Olive (Olvia) Fairfull of Wemyss, Fifeshire, Scotland in 1895. Olive's parents were James and Margaret and the entire Fairfull family relocated from Wemyss to Victoria, BC, Canada in approximately 1892. Donald McPherson (MacPherson) probably either travelled with them on their journey or came shortly thereafter. I have one historial record stating Donald's place of birth as Isle Ornsay. Another historical document lists his parents as Archibald McPherson (MacPherson) and Flora (Florence). I have no known siblins of Donald and I cannot locate his birth registration nor the marriage of his parents. I also tried searching for any other siblings with same two parents names. Searches of census records have also yielded no fruit. I have even searched for the death records of his parents all to no avail. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!!
