Lochcarron, Ross and Cromarty

[Records] [Bibliography] [Links]

Lochcarron had a parochial poorhouse by at least 1875. It was locally administered rather than operating as a statutory poorhouse under the central Board of Supervision.

The building was located at the west end of Lochcarron village, on the shore of Loch Carron. The building is identified as a poorhouse on both the first edition (c.1875) and second edition (c.1904) Ordnance Survey maps, while the 1881 census describes it as the "West End Poors Lodging House".

The former poorhouse is now a private residence still known as 'Poor House'.
