Scope and Content Former iron forge site, Fasagh, near Kinlochewe, Ross and Cromarty This forge was used by Sir George Hay as part of the iron-working empire he developed in Wester Ross under the patronage of James VI. His blast-furnaces were at Letterewe, halfway up Loch Maree, and at Poolewe, at the far end of the loch. This view shows the site of the forge, looking south east, towards Kinlochewe. The area was a confused mass of humps and hollows, partly excavated in the 19th century by W Ivieson McAdam. This iron-working venture was designed to use the local scrub woodland to make charcoal, and to produce iron ordnance, well away from interference. This forge appears to have been used to make wrought-iron guns. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
