Description

Relation on the mission of Scotland. There are eight missionaries in Scotland, including Fran'o Blanco [Francis White], Franc' Magdonel [Francis MacDonnell] and Robert Monro; they stay in the mountains in northern Scotland and in The Hebrides. On the island of Bara everyone is Catholic, on Ovist (the biggest island) there are 700 Catholics, and in Cordare and Mordare almost everyone is Catholic. The Catholics are obliged to pay a tax. Eugenio Macalister [Eugene Macalister] has worked in the school for some time. Some time ago Nicolo Dunbar was also sent to the mountains. 
Additional comments
Because of the presence of Francis MacDonnel, the composition of the document must be dated after 1668.
