Craock or Craast or Cruach?
The baptismal record says Craock in the OPR transcription in Steve Gilchrist’s website.
In my database I have the ‘corrected place’ as Craast. But I don’t know where the correction came from. It could have been from the IGI index of Islay McGilvray baptisms I photocopied many years ago.
But regardless, neither place appears anywhere else in all the baptisms on Islay
Nor do they appear in Bob McQueen’s index of Islay places.
Looking at all the other places in Kilarrow that are spelled similarly, my guess is that it should be Cruach.
Other members who might have an idea should know the baptism in question was in 1792.

Thank-you very much for that, it is great information - I looked at my family history some time ago and it is on my 'to do list' to get back into it
Where can I find information on the location of Craast, my internet search does not bring anything up?
