In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Salen like this:
Salen.-- quoad sacra par. and vil., Kilninian and Kilmore, and Torosay pars., Argyllshire, on E. side of Mull island - quoad sacra par., pop. 600; vil., on Sound of Mull, 20 miles NW. of Oban.
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 Salen has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Argyll and Bute. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Salen and units named after it.
