OS 6" map (1874)
Near Glen Nevis House (NN 1272) on a mound to the S of the road, is a little burying ground called "Tom-eas-an-t-slinnean" (Knoll of the waterfall of the shoulder). Here lie the old Camerons of Glen Nevis, who bore the patronymic of MacSorlie, a branch of Clan Cameron now extinct. In a corner of the burial ground is an old iron coffin, or mort safe.
D B MacCulloch 1938 <1>
The burial place is still used for the descendents of those already interred there. The modern graveyard is a little further down the glen. The mort-safe could not be found.

Some ommissions and inacuracies may be encountered. Published 1993. <2>
Photographs of the cemetery and a number of the gravestones were photographed by Martin Briscoe. The cemetery appears to be quite overgrown. <3>
