Information:The daughter of a minister died in this house, which is why it was abandoned and the stones left - Donald MacDonald, Heanish, 1/1994.

The minister's daughter did indeed die in this house but she died of Scarlet fever, aged between twelve and thirteen years. The minister was Neil MacLean. His daughter was named Ann Maria Flora, known within the family as Mary Flora. She is buried next to her parents at the western gable of the medieval Kirkapol Chapel. The manse was inadequate and in 1831 a delegation from the Presbytery of Mull visited Tiree and found Mr MacLean 'wholly unprovided for'. Thereafter, the manse, which we still call 'The Glebe' was erected, becoming occupied in 1833. Gordon Scott, Cornaigmore, 2/2013
