Project Summary

The History of Land-Use in Camuscross, The Highlands
The SRP project in Camuscross aims to extend knowledge and understanding of the history of the township by focusing this study on the importance of land-use and its effect on settlement patterns. The few remaining signs of older land-use in the crofting township will be recorded and compared to the evidence of land-use in the neighbouring area of Baravaig which has remains of turf and stone buildings, enclosures and rigs from when it was cleared in the early 1800s. The physical evidence will be augmented by documentary research by studying the Clan Donald estate papers, the Duisdale school log book and relevant contemporary written sources.

Place names of Camuscross

May 19 2008

Camuscross Community Steering Group was set up in February 2006, to work on developments for the benefit of the community of Camuscross and surrounding areas. The group has been researching local history and has collected a number of place names from local people. They mounted an exhibition of what they have collected so far at an Open Day on March 1st 2008, when five more names were added to the place name collection.

The crofts and the hill grazings of Camuscross are much smaller than those of townships in surrounding areas; it is thought that the landlord deliberately made the crofts small so that the crofters had to earn additional income by fishing. It is interesting that a lot of the place names which are still known are connected to the shore.

If you have any new place names to add to the list, or any stories or local history about the area, please contact the group at: enquiries@camuscross.org

In the past, the crofters would meet here on Saturday mornings to discuss township matters

Cidh’ a’ Chlachaig

This little stone pier was built during the famine years as a Destitution works – when the starving men were paid in meal for themselves and their families, as payment for building roads and other engineering works. This was common all over the Highlands and Islands.

Creag Dhonnchaidh

Duncan’s Rock

69574

11841

There are two ruins of houses below this hill, but it is not known if ‘Duncan’ lived in either house, or who he was. As the ruins are outside the township headwall, these were perhaps cottars, who did not have a croft and subsisted on meagre bits of land on the common grazings. There are still clear signs of cultivation rigs or lazy beds near the ruins, a small turf building, two circular turf buildings and the rigs and buildings are enclosed by a turf wall.

Creag Aonghais Mhòir

Big Angus’ Rock

69401

11860

There is a ruin of a house (69370 : 11815) near to this rock, but it is not known if ‘Big Angus’ lived there, or who he was. The house is outside the township headwall so was perhaps the house of a cottar, or from before the time of the creation of the crofts in early-mid 1800s.

Coraraidh

Corary

69284

12207

It is not known what Corary means. There are remains of old cultivations, enclosures and walls. Hens were kept at Corary, An Ob, (on Camuscross Bay) and above Tobar Ard, (above the High Road) in a time before fences, when the hens had to be kept away from the arable ground, where they could do damage to the crops. A small enclosure (69251 : 12242) might be where people kept their hens – it might have been made using the walls of an older building or house. The old cultivation and enclosures suggest that there was a dwelling somewhere in the vicinity.

Cnoc na Buaile Carnaich

Hill of the Cairn-like Fold

The small hillock is surrounded by an old sod wall – suggesting that it could once have been used to hold animals.

Duisdale School Log Books

May 29 2008

We are researching the Duisdale School Log Books, (Duisdale is next to Camuscross and was the local school for the area) as these give invaluable information about social history.  We will use the log book to research two themes:

1.    Rise and fall of population (or at least school age population) .  At the annual school inspection, the numbers of school pupils on the roll were recorded.  We could also create a more detailed graph of the weekly attendance, by studying the school register - and then compare that with the 'Crofting Calendar' (see below).  Click the link below to see the attendance table for 1878 to 1896 

http://www.scotlandsruralpast.org.uk/images/Duisdale_School_Log_Book_Attendance_1878_1896.doc

2.   Particularly of interest to our study is the evidence of what croft and fishing work was being done, when and by whom, which is logged as reasons for school absences.   There are school log books covering the period from 1878 to the 1960s, and we hope, eventually,  to produce a 'crofting calendar' for the whole period.   Click the link below to see the Crofting Calendar for the period 1878-1896.   The entries are colour coded to show what activity kept children off school or closed the school, or took place at the school:

Boswell's description of the turf houses of Sleat, Isle of Skye

Mar 23 2010

The "Slate" referred to in James Boswell's writing is Sleat, the peninsula in the south of Skye, where Camuscross, Baravaig and Isle Ornsay are situated

The Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides with
Samuel Johnson, by James Boswell, 1785
 
Monday, 6th September
We set out, accompanied by Mr Donald M'Leod (late of Canna) as our guide. 
We rode for some time along the district of Slate, near the shore.
The houses in general are made of turf, covered with grass. The country seemed well peopled
.
We came into the district of Strath, and passed along a wild moorish tract of land till we arrived

at the shore. There we found good verdure, and some curious whin-rocks, or collections of
stones like the ruins of the foundations of old buildings. We saw also three cairns
of
considerable size

Wednesday, 29th September
After a very good sleep, I rose more refreshed than I had been for some nights. 
We were now at but a little distance from the shore, and saw the sea from our windows,
which made our voyage seem nearer. Mr M'Pherson's manners and address pleased us much.
He appeared to be a man of such intelligence and taste as to be sensible of the extraordinary
powers of his illustrious guest. He said to me, 'Dr Johnson is an honour to mankind; and,
if the expression may be used, is an honour to religion.'
Col, who had gone yesterday to pay a visit at Camuscross, joined us this morning at breakfast

Emigration from Camuscross & Duisdale in the post-potato famine years of 1852-1855

Mar 23 2010

Over a four year period, from 1852-1855, 71 people left Camuscross and 12 people left the neighbouring township of Duisdalemore.  This followed the years of the Scottish potato famine.  It was during this time that the Camuscross "Committee Road" and pier in Camuscross Bay were commissioned by the Poor Relief Board.  These public works were built by local men, who were paid in meal to keep them and their families from starvation.
