Druim na Aird Abandoned village
Druim na Aird Abandoned village
These remains were once the community of Druid an Aird (the Long Ridge), which was located on a right of way from Dalwhinnie to the Corrieyairack pass via Feagour. When the village was abandoned is unclear but local folklore has it that following the loss of the all the menfolk who perished in a winter storm, the place was left by the women. It was insensitively planted over by a conifer plantation by the Forestry Commission in the 1960's but following a community buy-out, the Laggan Forestry Trust created a trail and cleared the trees around the village. A pleasant path offers access to the village.
