Stoer on the narrow and hilly but pleasing road from Lochinver to Kylesku. Stoer is one of the remoter Highland villages or townships. There is bathing, trout ﬁshing in the many small lochs, and, from the hill of Cnoc Poll, ﬁne views of the more celebrated Sutherland isolated peaks.
Near Stoer is a broch on a low eminence bordered to the west by the sea and to the east by a broad expanse of turf on sand.
Beyond, the sharp peaks of Quinag loom across l0 meters of low broken hills and innumerable lochs. The ruins of large rectangular blocks stand in places to a height of over 6 ft. The diameter of the interior is 32 ft, and the wall is about l4 ft thick the outer end of the entrance passage was covered with a triangular lintel.
There is a lighthouse to the south of Rhu Stoer, and the headland has crofting townships scatteredover it.
In the 18th cent. there must have been a much larger population than there is now. Trace of the vanished inhabitants remain.
