Glenegedale Lots

Now just a solitary agricultural holding, Glenegedale Lots lie between the Torra River and the Glenegedale River, 4½ miles (7.5 km) southeast of Bowmore in S Central Islay. Once comprising more individual divisions, the others now abandoned, these holdings were established in the late 1820s by clearing and draining moorland to provide a home and just enough land grow crops and raise animals for part-time or non-agricultural workers and their families, some displaced from townships elsewhere. Similar settlements, Duich Lots and Glenegedalemoor Lots lie ¾ mile (1.2 km) to the west northwest and a mile (1.8 km) to the south respectively.
