Morvern Bound - Lochaline, Ardtornish and Rahoy
The Carved Stones of Kiel are a collection of medieval carved gravestone slabs originally located in the graveyard of Kiel. These impressive stones, decorated with Celtic artwork, are now housed in the Old Session House, by Kiel Church. Kiel was an important religious centre in the Middle Ages.
The Rahoy Hills Wildlife Reserve has been managed by The Scottish Wildlife Trust in association with The Ardtornish Estate since the 1970s. There is a well signed, if slightly boggy, walk around the shores of Loch Arienas to the old deserted settlement of Arienas, with great views over the loch as well as a walk up through the woods and along the banks of The Black water river.
Aoineadh Mor (pronounced Inniemore) is a deserted village and serves as a testimony to the Highland Clearances. The story of the clearances in 1824 is told through the words of Mary Cameron in a number of interactive interpretation panels scattered throughout the village. The site is run by Forrestry Commission Scotland and there is a well signed walk starting from the car park.
Take time to explore the village, listen to Mary's story and reflect on what could have been.
