Glenan Deserted Village

Glenan Deserted Village

The settlement here is thought to date back to 1309 and was still inhabited many years after the Highland Clearances had led to many other villages being abandoned.

The last inhabitant is thought to have left Glenan at the beginning of the twentieth century, though some local legends tell that he hung himself in the oak woods below.

The remains of several houses are still clearly visible and this is a haunting place to sit and imagine what life must have been like in harder times.

To get there, follow the path through the Glenan Wood.
