Malcolm Macleod (1835-1923) son of Malcolm Macleod and Margaret Maciver, 20 Balallan married Janet Martin, 21b Balallan and resided at 20a Balallan. Malcolm owned a share in the fishing boat the "Hope". He sold his share around 1860 on account of his sea-sickness and set up in business in Balallan Buth a Cheannaich. He became the first tenant of 20a Balallan when the croft was split in 1886. This house, which was attached to 20 Balallan and called Glenmavis, provided a unique standard of living in the area at that time.
They had a family of eight, two of whom received a University education.
