In the seventeenth century Sir Duncan Campbell, seventh laird of Glenorchy, advanced to his son, Robert Campbell of Glenflloch and to John MacDougall in Ferlochan, the sum of 2000 merks, to construct a salt pan on his lands of Glentindell in Lorn. These pans were in operation the same year, viz. 1623. The place where they were situated is now called Salt croft, where the two modern houses are built.
Glentindell is now called Glendu.
Ferlochan was and is a farm not far away.
Herring made their appearance in Lochetive at certain periods of the year. W:benever an " eye " of herring was spotted the boats were launched, and a night's fishing took
place. The catch was all cured locally and used by the people as their winter food.1
