Parish notes

Cowan (1967, 148): 'Attempts have been made to identify this church with that of Arisaig, since the lands of Modworthe and Knodworthe with the donation of the church were granted in the reign of Robert I to Roderick, son of Alan (OPS II, i, 200) ...) This is unconvincing, however, and the church of Moidart, the major part of whose revenues pertained to Iona at the Reformation, appears to havef had an independent existence, its residual parsonage fruits resting either with the bishop of Argyll or that of the Isles.'
