Information:It was his grandfather, Duncan, who moved from Craignis to Mìodar, along with his two brothers. Duncan heard that the people who lived in Urvaig at the time, brother and sister Lachie and Ishbel MacLean ,were going to build the Cameron's house. Lachie wrote down the timber he needed to order and was walking to post the letter when he walked past the shore which was covered in timber. Duncan Cameron, Scarinish, 4/09. Confirmed by Angus MacLean, Scarinish, and Mary Ann MacLennan, 5/2009.

The Camerons moved from Craignish either in 1910 or 1912. They were fishermen but fishing was becoming less profitable and they had no ground for crofting. They put in for MacFadyen’s farm at Mìodar when it became vacant and they were successful. This farm was put together from 3-4 crofts. One was Croit Ailein a’ Grudaire or Croit Iain mhic Ailein (nearest Urvaig), and another Croit a’ Chàrnain (MacLeans). Angus MacLean, Scarinish, 5/2009.
