Information:The factor in the 1850s was from Islay who brought a deputy, MacNiven, also from Islay. MacNiven was favoured because he had married the factor's maidservant who was also the factor's mistress. The factor made A' Chreag Ghlas into a croft and gave it to MacNiven and another croft too. To prevent a public outcry, the factor gave Barrapol township land where the Heylipol church stands and planted gorse bushes as boundary markers - Hugh MacLean, Barrapol, 3/1994.
