(NC 825320) Ach' na h-Uai' (NAT) (NC 82683209) Meeting House (remains of) (NAT) OS 6"map, (1963)

This ruined depopulated township of about 25 hectares consisted of nine buildings and a corn drying kiln. Around the houses there are associated walled vegetable plots, field walls and narrow rig. A wall bounds the northern half of the township. The Meeting House comprises a T-shaped building whose walls now stand to a maximum height of 1.8 m. A graveyard attached to the S of the building contains several headstones, the earlier of which is dated 1837, although the Meeting House is known to have been in use only until 1812. It is comparable with that at Achness.
