Thanks but all you have done is detailed what I can read. My opinion is that if all of the land (which it implies) was in the name of the Magistrates and councillors of Royal Burgh of Forres in 1997 then they must have also owned it in 1975. It was also detailed as part of a Royal Charter from the 1400s. My opinion is that given this written detail then the land was Common Good when sold in 1997. Please confirm or deny my opinion.
So I accept that but what about the second parcel of land? Registered in the name of The Magistrates and Councillors of the Royal Burgh of Forres.
