My parents were lucky enough to accompany Martin Annal on a trip to see the
feral cattle on Swona a few years ago. They've been able to repay the
favour recently by putting Martin up when he came to Edinburgh for the
Highland Show earlier this year.

As for Barbara ANNAL & John SINCLAIR, I recently had some correspondence
with Robert Blake ALLAN about this couple - are you in touch with him?
Barbara died in 1833, aged 83.
