I am a descendant of Donald Stewart and have information on this branch of our family. This stone I learnt was erected by some of our family here in Canada circa 1900. If you are related to these Stewarts or other Stewarts from Skye, I would love to hear from you. Perhaps we can exchange notes.

It is possibly a long shot ! Donald Stewart died after 1881 at Portree, Skye when he was 88yrs old on the census, he had a daughter Flora Stewart B1803 D1838 at Harlosh, married in 1829 to Norman Macphee. Donald Stewarts wife appears to be Mary MacMillan...............
