    Notes 
    • Donald on returning home from conveying his father-in-law through Glenlivet was drowned in the water of Lochy, about a mile below his own house; and his body not having been found for some time. It was generally believed that he had been drowned in the Awin or Livet, and hence the saying of Maggy Mulloch (an idiot all covered over with hair, and on that account believed to be a witch), "Wet and weary, seeking Donald between Dalrady and the Lettach."

      Donald had a feu or wadset of Dalrady, Glenlochy, and Glenbruin, originally from the Earl of Moray as proprietor of the lands of Abernethy; but his cousin, who lived at Inverlochy, turned his widow out under pretense of being heir male to it, and some time afterwards disposed of his interest in it to Freuchy, the laird of Grant. Donald's widow with her daughter and only child came to the neighborhood of her cousin Achlochrach, and dwelt in Belandie, until his son and her daughter were married to each other.
