ISSAY, an island, in that part of the parish of Duirinish which constituted the late quoad sacra parish of Waternish, county of Inverness; containing 90 inhabitants. This isle, also called Eilean Isa, or "Island of Jesus," is the largest of several isles lying between Loch Bay and Loch Dunvegan, two considerable north-western inlets of the Isle of Skye. It is about three miles in circumference; and the soil, being generally fertile, affords comfortable support to about fifteen families.
