Cluanie Inn, started 1787 An isolated staging post situated where drovers of old turned south for Tomdoun via Loch Loyne, built on the instructions of Macdonell of Glengarry. Despite additions by George Rhind, 1842 , and 20th century accretions, it is still recognisable as the typical two-storey, threebay change house associated with the coming of improved routes through the glens. This was one of two inns in the parish (the other being at Shielhouse) built "for the comfort of travellers". In Glen Shiel, a bypassed bridge on the old road, Telford, 1815, marks the site of the battle of Glenshiel, 1719.
