Using information from estate archives we will link the ruins of the cleared settlement at Rhaoin with the people who lived there. The settlement was tack of Gordon with 9 subtenants, but cleared in 1811 for a sheep farm. People went across the hill and took their timbers. Montrose is said to have camped here prior to Carbisdale battle.
