Dores, Inverness-shire

In around 1884, the parish of Dores erected a small poorhouse or almshouse which was administered by the Parochial Board rather than operating as a statutory poorhouse under the central Board of Supervision.

In 1904, the property, location unknown, was recorded as comprising four rooms, under the supervision of a caretaker.
