The Old Shepherd's House
The Old Shepherd's House
As I set off to walk from Amer around Loch Duagrich one time, I spoke to an elderly farmer who was keen to give me directions. He told me I would pass 'The Old Shepherd's House' - and here it is. It is described in the Highland Council Historic Environment Record as a farmstead, and may have been occupied into the 20th century. It is in a very remote spot. The river in the foreground is the Luidaig Burn, which flows steeply down from Ben Duagrich. The water beyond is Loch Duagrich. The grassy ground all around the ruin is VERY boggy!
But in spite of the bog, it is such a silent and peaceful location, it would not have been a bad place to live - except maybe when the midges are biting...
