This is the third in a series about western Ardnamurchan's scheduled monuments.
Torr na Moine was one of West Ardnamurchan's clachans with lands that stretched north as far as Loch Mudle. It is probably many centuries, perhaps even a millennium old, and we know that, in 1737 it had a population of 19 in five families - nine men, six women and four children.
The RCAHMS continues, "A variety of different types of buildings are represented, as well as a series of later sheep fanks.
"The monument is of national importance because of its potential to contribute to our understanding of post-medieval settlement and economy and the process of the Clearances in Ardnamurchan. Its importance is increased by its proximity to other monuments of potentially contemporary date, such as the cleared settlement of Bourblaige which is already scheduled."
.... the site, and the size of the sheep fank, is very clearly seen from the road.
While the motives for scheduling a large area of Tornamona are laudable, the RCAHMS might have done better to have scheduled a much larger area of Camas nan Geall than the two small patches it did. Camas nan Geall is far more likely to have Viking remains, and there are features within the Camas nan Geall clachan, such as a very old sheep fank, which are lacking in Tornamona.
