Information:A MacLean from Balemartine came to the manse at New Year hoping for a dram. The minister (the one before MacInnes) was out but his housekeeper or wife opened the door and let him in. She asked him if he would take tea and MacLean said yes. He noticed as she prepared tea that she had a large sore on her lip and that there was only one cup. Thinking it would be rude to refuse, he picked up the cup with his left hand and started drinking. "Ah! You are left-handed (ciotach) like myself!" she said - David McClounnan, Balephuil, 11/1997.

At one time there was a parish school on the site of the manse. The present building [Heylipol Farm - JH] is situated on a knoll called Dobhar an Teampaill ('Temple Water'). It is no longer a manse but the rent office for the estate...The last minister to occupy the manse was the late Rev Neil MacInnes from Broadford in Skye - Bailtean is Ath-Ghairmean, Niall M Brownlie, Argyll Publishing, 1995, p102.
