Recording Your Heritage Online

Glen Roy is virtually empty today, although one of the mainland's last Gaelicspeaking communities survived here until the 1950s/60s, despite clearances carried out by the Mackintoshes in the 19th century and later voluntary departures. Bohuntine, a small township of about five or six traditional croft houses, is the last survival of a collective farm created for crofters when the glen was cleared - a rare unspoilt group of vernacular buildings (some tin-roofed, some derelict, a few recently improved) which includes a barn with ventilation slits and various other outbuildings. Beyond Brae Roy Lodge, 19th century, a standard gabled shooting lodge, are Turret Bridge and Leckroy Bridge, 18th century, probably engineered by Caulfeild. Still operational, these single-spanned, hump-backed bridges contribute to the surviving character of this branch of the early military highway, winding through ever more lonely stretches of the Braeroy and Corrieyairack forests towards Dalwhinnie.
