"BRACADALE, a parish in the Isle of Skye, in the county of Inverness, Scotland. It is situated in a wild hilly country on the south-west coast of the island, at the head of Loch Bracadale, and includes the small islands of Soay, Vuiay, Haversay, and Oronsay. The loch affords good anchorage. Gaelic is spoken by the people, many of whom are reputed to be endowed with the faculty of "second sight." The living, of the value of £158, is in the presbytery of Skye, and in the patronage of M'Leod of M'Leod, who is the sole landowner. There is also a Free church. The parish extends about 20 miles in length and 8 miles in breadth."
