Malcolm Finlayson

The second tenant at the 'Buaile Glas' was Malcolm Finlayson, who was a shepherd at Mulhagerry on the Park Sheep Farm before coming to Calbost. He was one of the original seven crofters at Calbost and was there with Robert Weir the Tacksman. Local tradition maintain that these Finlaysons came from the mainland - probably from the area of Lochcarron. The Calbost and the Marvig Finlaysons are of the same stock.

Malcolm (1792-1880) was a son of Donald and Christina Finlayson, Pairc.  

He had a son, Donald, with Helen, Mackenzie, 14 Old Eishken.  

Malcolm married Catherine Macarthur of Gravir. They settled at 14 Calbost and they had four children.  

He was widowed in 1835 and in Lochs, in 1838  married Catherine Macarthur, widow of Angus Chisholm,  29 Gravir. Catherine had three daughters from her first marriage and two daughters with Malcolm.
