Failte gu Fuadach nan Gaidhealt na h-Alba.
The Highland Clearances were a devestating part of the history of Scotland. For many it changed not only their way of life but also shaped the rural future of Scotland. Many villagers suffered at the hands of their landlords and tackmen and fought a desperate struggle to find a new life. Others managed to propser in a new life that never saw them return to Scotland again. Here is a resource that supports the documentation and historical value of this important area of Scottish history. You can follow in the footsteps of these villagers and find detailed descriptions and locations of the remains of some of the villages and townships through site descriptions, photographs and suggestions for further reading and links to follow.

Dalmore, Farmstead. Glen Almond

The second visit of the day was on the way back to Craig navar. The site is Dalmore Farmstead. This site, along with Craig Navar and Tomenbowie, can be visited on the same day, with the walk to and from them, parking at Newton Bridge, being roughly a 6 mile round trip. The more adventerous amongst you can carry on along the path and cover the 17 miles to Loch Tay!

The site is located at NN862 317
