There is a memorial grave marker on Vatersay to the tragic foundering of the 'Annie Jane'. (in 1853 and not 1854 as it says on the stone). There are no names but it does explain what happened to the ship.

Thanks to ADP for the transcription.

"On 28th Sept 1853 the ship Annie Jane with emigrants from Liverpool to Quebec was totally wrecked in this bay and threefourths of the crew and passengers numbering about 350 men women and children were drowned and their bodies interred here."

Given the ship sailed from Liverpool and not a Scottish port I wonder if Alexander Macrae was in the crew rather than an emigrant?

You can see the obelisk here:
