Boundary Changes 1889-92 : Argyll
19.—COUNTY OF ARGYLL.
There were three parishes situated partly in the county and partly in another county (the county of Inverness), viz.,
Ardnamurchan, Kilmallie, and Small Isles.
The following are the changes effected on the county boundary :—
A. With the County of Inverness.
No change has been made on the county boundary which runs through the parish of Ardnamurchan. The parish remains partly in the county of Argyll and partly in the county of Inverness.—See further County of Inverness, Ardnamurchan, supra, p. 141.
The parish of Kilmallie was situated partly in Argyllshire and partly in Inverness-shire. The Order printed at p. 14, while not placing the parish of Kilmallie wholly in one county, altered the county boundary which runs through that parish. Instead of following as formerly an irregular line through the parish considerably north of Loch Eil, it now runs along the centre of Loch Eil, and from the head of that loch it follows the line, described in the Order, to Loch Sheil. The effect of the Order, therefore, is to transfer a certain area in the parish of Kilmallie from the county of Argyll to the County of Inverness.
For details see County of Inverness, Kilmallie, supra, p. 141.
The parish of Small Isles, which was situated partly in the county
and partly in the county of Inverness, was by the Order printed at p. 16 placed wholly in the county of Inverness.
For details see County of Inverness, Small Isles, supra, p. 142.
1.—Craignish and Kilninver & Kilmelfort.
The parish of Craignish had a detached part situated at Lagalochan, a short distance north of the north-east corner of the parish. By the Order printed at p. 90 this detached part has been transferred to Kilninver & Kilmelfort.
The following subject has thus been transferred from the parish of Craignish to the parish of Kilninver & Kilmelfort :—
|Laggan Lochan,||Land and house,||Trustess of Mrs. C. G. Bolitho and Mrs. A. L. McNeill of Glenmore.|

2.—Glenorchy & Inishail
The island of Inishail in Loch Awe was a detached part of the parish Kilchrenan & Dalavich. By the Order printed at p. 90 it was transferred to the parish of Glenorchy & Inishail. The following subject has thus has been transferred from the parish of Kilchrenan & Dalavich to the parish of Glenorchy & Inishail :—
|Inishail,||Island,||Duke of Argyll.|

3.—Kilcalmonell & Kilberry and u Knapdale.
The Kilberry district of the parish of Kilcalmonell & Kilberry
formed a detached part of the parish, being separated from the main portion of the parish by the parish of South
Knapdale and by West Loch Tarbert.
By the Order printed at p. 92 the Kilberry district was transferred to the parish of South Knapdale, and it was directed
that the remainder of the parish of Kilcalmonell & Kilberry should be
called the parish of Kilcalmonell.
The following subjects have thus been transferred from the parish of Kilcalmonell & Kilberry to the parish of South Knapdale :—
|Estate ot Kilberry—Kilberry,||Mansion-house, offices, and servants' houses,||Captain J. C. Campbell, R. N., of Ardpatrick.|

4.—Kilfinichen & Kilvickeon and Pennygown & Torosay.
The parish of Pennygown & Torosay had a detached part which was situated at Burg on the north side of the entrance to Loch Scridain, and adjoined the parish of Kilfinichen & Kilvickeon. By the order printed at p. 92 this detached part was transferred to the parish of Kilfinichen & Kilvickeon, and a part of the parish of Kilfinichen & Kilvickeon, situated on the west shore of Loch Buie, was in turn transferred to the parish of Pennygown & Torosay.
The following subjects are affected :—
(1.) Transferred from the parish of Pennygown & Torosay to the parish of Kilfinichen & Kilvickeon.
|Burg,||House and land,||Donald Macintyre of Burg.|
(2.) Transferred from the parish of Kilfinichen & Kilvickeon to the parish of Pennygown & Torosay.

5.—Kilmallie and Lismore & Appin.
The parish of Lismore & Appin had a detached part situated at Kingairloch on the north side of Loch Linnhe. By the Order printed
at p. 91 this detached part was transferred to the parish of Kilmallie.
The following subjects have thus been transferred from the parish of Lismore & Appin to the parish of Kilmallie :—
|Kilmalieu,||Mansion-house, offices, servants' house, land, and fishings,||Wm. K. Gair of Kilmalieu.|

(Sheets 44, 52 and 53 of the Ordnance Survey maps of Scotland, one-inch scale).
1. The counties are arranged in the order as in the Census returns, "such that a zig-zag line beginning at the north of Scotland and carried to the south passes successively through every County". The counties have the same numbers as in the Census returns.
2. The subjects transferred are enumerated under the head of the County or Parish to which they are transferred. Thus when an area has been transferred from County A to County B, the subjects affected are enumerated under County B, and a cross reference is given under County A.
3. The names of subjects are those contained in the Valuation Rolls. In the description of subjects the term "farm" includes the farm-house and servants' houses, and the term "croft" includes the house. But where any of the servants' houses on the farm have distinctive names, such houses are detailed separately. "House" includes "cottage", and "land" includes gardens, yards &c.
4. The names of proprietors are in almost all cases those given in The Valuation Rolls of 1890-91. It is therefore to be borne in mind that those who are described as proprietors may be limited owners only, such as liferenters or leaseholders.
5. Where villages or towns are affected, the names of the subjects and proprietors are not usually given. The description of the area transferred is in such cases quite sufficient to show whatever and to what extent any subject in the village or town has been affected by the Order.
6. The Ordnance Survey maps referred to are those published by the Ordnance Survey Department on the scale of one inch to the mile. Those published down to this date (1891), show the Counties and Parishes as they were before the Order of the Commissioners came into operation. It is expected that, when the work of the Commissioners is completed, revised maps will be issued to show the altered boundaries, but the sheets of the revised maps will bear the same numbers as the present maps. The Orders and the explanations can be followed readily on the maps as published at present.
7. An ampersand (&) has been used wherever a County or a Parish has a double name, e.g. "Ross & Cromarty" or "Fetlar & North Yell".
8. In most cases it is necessary to read the text of the order along with the explanation, because the full descriptions contained in the Orders are, as a rule, not repeated in the explanation.
