I am afraid that Skye was a big MacKinnon stronghold and Strath was where the chiefs and family are buried 100's of them, there is a ruined church there with a macKinnon grave yard, but only the more dominant ones have grave/headstones, I do have some details of some later MacKinnon's that lived in Luib, Strath about 8 miles to the north on MacKinnon country my family inter married with the MacKinnon's as the township of Luib was basically just MacArthur and MacKinnon.
