The Mackenzies of Castle Craig
In 2014 Ross and Cromarty Heritage Society received an interesting account, headed The Black Isle, by Mr Jim Mackenzie, of Exeter, detailing his researches into his forebears during a holiday in Ross-shire in 2010.
As his story begins in land surrounding Castle Craig, it is felt that it should be included in the community of Resolis, although the family extends into other communities in the RCHS website.

In September 2017 Mr Barclay Price approached RCHS seeking assistance with his research into the first Chinese man to come to Scotland, in the 1770s. Following conclusion of his findings he gave permission to reproduce the lecture he gave on behalf of Edinburgh World Heritage on the life of William Macao. RCHS is grateful to Mr Price for this intriguing history.
