Applecross, Ross and Cromarty

[Records] [Bibliography] [Links]

In around 1899, the parish of Applecross took out a 20-year lease on a property for use as a parochial poorhouse or almshouse. It was administered by the Parochial Board rather than operating as a statutory poorhouse under the central Board of Supervision.

In 1904, the establishment, location unknown, was recorded as being able to house 4 men, 4 women, and 4 children.
