Clashnessie  Sutherland


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Clashnessie like this:

Clashnessie, a bay and a hamlet in the NW of Assynt parish, SW Sutherland. The bay enters between the Point of Stoer and Oldany island; lies exposed to NW winds; and, excepting over a small space at its head, is properly no more than part of the Minch. The hamlet lies at the bay's head, 21/8. miles NNE of Stoer.
