Lat [Latitude] 56:35:40 Long [Longitude] 3°25'20"
you will find a house marked Ballied.
I am the owner thereof and wish that

should be changed to Achalader.
As you will probably want some solid
reason for making an alteration -. We have been for
a very long time and are generally known as
Campbells of Achalader. The place we take

1788 with the proviso that the owner should
continue to be known as Campbell of
Achalader. The Estate indeed is known
by that name but no effective steps
have ever been taken to alter the name of the
