Photograph of members of the Galbriath family, Balevullin, ca. 1890

Black & white photograph of (probably) L-R: Janet Galbraith, Balevullin, her husband Donald MacDonald, Kilmoluaig, and her sister Mary Galbraith in around 1890. Janet and Mary were daughters of James Galbraith (1821-1903) who was born in Gigha, and came to Tiree from Rothiemurchus, near Aviemore, with his wife and children in 1874 to take up the position of School Master of the Parochial School at Balevullin. He was given the croft at Balevullin as part of his payment. Mary married John MacDonald of Cornaigmore in 1907, and continued to run the croft at Balevullin until the Duke of Argyll reclaimed it in 1903.
