The Ardnamurchan area had two parish poorhouses or almshouses, one at Langall (or Langal) near Dalilea, and another at Scotstown.
The building at Langall is thought to date from the early nineteenth century and was once used for meetings by the local Roman Catholic community. After its adoption as an almshouse, the building accommodated around eight residents and, in the early 1900s, had a resident nurse.
The building was later fell into disrepair but has now been converted to a private residence, appropriately named the Old Poor's House.
A house at Scotstown, now a guest-house, is also said to have operated as an almshouse.
