The bay of the walled enclosure

WE HAVE all seen them: small nondescript buildings crumbling away by the side of the road, which you wouldn’t give a second glance among the timber and glass ‘palaces’ that pass for houses these days.

But don’t dismiss them altogether as many of them have an interesting history. One of the best examples in Morvern is on the south shores of Loch Sunart between Achleek and Liddesdale on Laudale Estate. Camus na h-Airbhe (pronounced camus na hay riv) is a very old Gaelic place name meaning the bay of the walled enclosure. The enclosure was built to corral sheep, cattle and goats before they were taken away by boat. In it there is a cottage probably dating to the beginning of the 1800s.
