The site where a small village was evicted in 1819.
The families lived in black-houses and they had corn-kilns and stockyards. Unfortunately there is not a lot to be seen, but there are information boards with the full story and layout.
Turn left at the road sign on the East end of the Naver bridge and continue along the road for about one and a half miles until you come to a disused quarry on your left. Park your car in the quarry and Achanlochy is on the hill above. Achanlochy (meaning the small field by the loch) is situated on the North side of Lochan Duinte and was one of about 50 pre-clearance settlements in Strathnaver.
Achanlochy, now reduced to seven families, was given notice to quit at Whitsun, 1818 and was finally cleared in the 3rd great clearance of Strathnaver in 1819 by Francis Suther. They were among 225 families who were dispossessed at this time and the village ceased to exist. The land was then rented to John Paterson of Sandside, Reay as part of a sheepwalk and now forms part of Bettyhill common grazings.
