"Tithe" - a tenth part of agricultural or other produce, personal income, or profits, contributed either voluntarily or as a tax for the support of the church or clergy or for charitable purposes.
The Teind Roll for 1951 provides us with a register of all the properties in the Parish liable to pay the equivalent of Council Rates. Unfortunately the list is not searchable. A spreadsheet has been created that is searchable.

“The parishes of Urquhart and Logie Wester, whose teinds had been linked together as early as 1257, were united some time between 1450 and 1500.”
