Ashaig Area Information

ASHAIG (Gaelic: Crossing)
The full Gaelic name is 'Aiseag Mhaolruibhe' and means the Ferry of either Saint Maol Ruba or Saint Maree. There are the Chapel ruins with an 'al fresco' pulpit and nearby, the districts old burial ground by a sandy shore. A well and a large, unusually shaped, boulder are both said to have remarkable healing powers.

DROCHAID LUSA (Gaelic: Bridge over flowery burn)
The road south from here leads to Kylerhea through picturesque Glen Arroch. This was once a very busy route used by drovers taking livestock to the mainland.
