Poulouriscaig - an abandoned township
Poulouriscaig - an abandoned township
An old track leads up the bare hillside to the ruins of a couple of stone houses which formed the township of Poulouriscaig. The township was abandoned after the Highland Clearances and now lies almost forgotten in a sheltered dip on the rocky headland about 4 kilometres to the north-west of Armadale.
