There is no trace of Kildonan on Google Maps to be found. If you know where to look (57.865564,-5.235921), you can see the outlines of what used to be houses and barns. Kildonan is gone because the people of Kildonan had to go.
How hard and frugal their lives must have been. Cold and desolate at times. Mackenzie of Ardross owned the land and evicted the people of Kildonan in 1840. They were left destitute with no place to go, no provision of food or shelter, no prospects, no future. Many died.
The dead were left behind in the graveyard. But nature has taken over, traces of old tombstones are not to be found. The bay is quiet now. Cold winds blow over the land of the Kildonan families. Their graves are lost as bracken and heather cover the last signs of what was once a living Highland community.
Two hours of stumbling across the remains of Kildonan have not been enough to find the old graveyard. Anyone who can point it out more clearly, please get in touch!
