Rental document associated with the Baillies of Dunain

The Baillies of Dunain were an Inverness family who lived in and around the area from the mid-15th century onwards. Although their estate was small in comparison with many of the principal Highland families, they occupied a niche in the upper levels of Highland society.

A substantial collection of the family's papers is held by The Highland Council Archive Service. The papers cover the period c.1760-1860.

This document is dated 1793. It lists the various rentals received from the estate properties. At this time the estate was known as 'Dunean', as opposed to the more modern 'Dunain'. The rent could be paid in kind as well as in cash and the tenants offered hens, peats, wedders (sheep) and dry matter as payment.
The document lists the property names and the names of the tenants, as well as the total amounts of rentals received
