Archaeology Notes

NC76NE 7 765 656.

Poulouriscaig is a township settled by people cleared from Strathnaver in 1814-9 and deserted about 1943. It comprises the roofless remains of seven buildings, kaleyards and enclosures, and areas of lazy-beds, all within an enclosing boundary wall. Most of the houses appear to date from the late 19th century.

Visited by OS 15 July 1977.

The township comprising six roofed buildings and one unroofed building is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Sutherland 1878, sheet ix). There are seven unroofed buildings shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10,560 map (1962).

Information from RCAHMS (AKK) 14 August 1995.
