APPENDIX 5
List of Lairds/Owners
of Raasay and Rona
Until the 1587 Act of Annexation, which transferred ownership of all Church lands to the Crown, the lands of Raasay and Rona were owned by the Church. They were held by the Bishop of the Isles as representative of the Church.From sometime in the fifteenth century, the MacLeods of Raasay held these lands as tenants of the Bishop of the Isles. Prior to that, according to tradition, Raasay and Rona had been held by MacSweens. Quite possibly they too had been tenants of the bishop.
