History of Auchindrain

History of Auchindrain by Ted Lollis.

Auchindrain is a ancient village -- or township -- or communal tenancy -- of about 20 buildings near Inveraray, Scotland, on the estate of the Dukes of Argyll. Auchindrain was not destroyed or materially changed by the Highland Clearances and is therefore the largest and most authentic old rural village in Scotland today. The buildings and adjacent fields have been preserved and are now an open-air museum of farming life.
