Hidden Gometra

If you visit Gometra don't stay on the road. Hidden in a broad glen above the harbour is this large abandoned settlement. It has no name on the map, but the nearby anchorage between Gometra and Ulva is known as Bailachlaidh Harbour, so perhaps the settlement's name was Bailachlaidh. I'm not certain, but the name may mean village of the burial ground, and the Gometra cemetery is not far away. If you look closely you'll see the photographer in the photo.
