Morven, Argyll

The parish of Morven established a small poorhouse or almshouse in about 1864. It was locally administered rather than operating as a statutory poorhouse under the central Board of Supervision.

The establishment was located in rented premises at Lochaline. In 1904, it was recorded as being able to accommodate up to eight women.

The building is now (2004) used as a restaurant.
