Thank you. I have done some additional digging and the dividing line between Alnwick Parish and Newcastle Parish is the Bartibog River (east side). One site also shows that Bartibog Bridge is in Alnwick Parish and Lower Newcastle is in Newcastle Parish. The early occupants of MacDonald Farm appear in Newcastle Parish (Lower) in 1851. So I guess that the MacDonald Farm and places west of it are in Newcastle Parish and the RC Church at Bartibog Bridge is in Alnwick Parish. Interesting that Alexander MacDonald was referred to as "Alexander MacDonald of Bartibog".
