Hello Martin
I visited Achnagart only a few weeks ago during a 10 day stay in Scotland. My great grandafather was Francis Humberston McCrae who travelled to Tasmania, Australia in the mid 19th Century and died in Victoria, Australia. He did have several children but I think that branch of the Torlysich/Achnagart family died out after 2 generations. I understand he had a son who also had a son, Harry , who I met (mainly at funerals) and was a lovely man but sadly he had no children. However,Francis's ancestors in Australia, through his daughters, are many! I was was sorry not to have learned more about the family history before we left Dornie where we stayed at the Loch Duich Hotel.
Regards
Barbara Enraght-Moony
