According to the 1881 census, the parish of Kiltarlity was then operating at least four small poorhouses or almshouses which were administered by the Parochial Board rather than operating as statutory poorhouses under the central Board of Supervision.
The first appears to have been at Camault Muir, in the vicinity of the Free Church Manse. The second was a little further to the south in the area of "Glaickbea" (now usually spelt as Glaichbea). The other two were to the south of Eskadale at "Knockcoille" (variously spelt as Knockchoille, Knockcholly, Knockkolly) and "Kineras" (Kinneras).
