Armadale  Inverness Shire


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

Armadale, a fishing village, a bay, and a burn, in Farr parish, NE Sutherland. The village stands to the W of the bay, at 200 feet of elevation, and has a post office under Thurso, 23 miles to the E by N. The bay, flanked eastward by Strathy Point, is 2½ miles wide and 13/8 mile long, its innermost indentation being ¾ mile long, and from 5 to 3½ furlongs wide, and it is one of the few points in all the rock-bound coast of Farr where boats may land in moderate weather. ...

The burn runs 5 miles NNE and NNW from Loch Buidhe Mòr to the head of the bay.
