In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Glenelg like this:
Glenelg, par. and vil. with quay, W. Inverness-shire -- par., 134,778 ac., pop. 1601; vil., on Glenelg Bay, 7 miles SW. of Lochalsh; P.O. The par. is divided, by Loch Hourn and Loch Nevis, into the 3 districts of Glenelg, Knoydart, and Morar.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Glenelg has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Highland. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Glenelg and units named after it.
