Lochs, Ross and Cromarty

[Records] [Bibliography] [Links]

According to the 1881 census, Lochs, on the island of Lewis, operated a parish poorhouse or almshouse. It was administered by the Parochial Board rather than operating as a statutory poorhouse under the central Board of Supervision.

The establishment was at the eastern end of Crosbost (or Crossbost), near the Free Church Manse, although its exact location has yet to be verified.
