Clan MORRISON, Isle of Lewis, Scotland

I can only trace back my Lewis MORRISONs to a Murdo and his wife Ann (Macleod) who lived in Crior on Great Bernera off the west coast of Lewis (now joined to Lewis by a
bridge). Their son Malcolm (Calum) was born there in 1797, and married a Rachel Mackenzie of Bosta, Bernera. Their son John (Iain) MORRISON (1831-1916) married Ann
Macdonald of Tobson, Bernera, and they moved their family to Bragar on Lewis, where their son Donald Macdonald MORRISON (1859-1951), my great-grandfather, was born.

I am trying to determine how they are related to other members of the Clan MORRISON on Lewis and Harris, Scotland.

Does anyone have info on John Morrison, tacksman of Bragar (1680's) and his son Rory, the Blind Harper (Clarsair Dall). I am trying to determine their relation ship to Hugh the Brieve as well as possibly to my own line later on.

Any links?
