'Old coffin routes which were used in time past by burial parties going to Clachan Church at Applecross Bay. There are various cairns along the route which indicate where the procession would have rested and possibly drank to the deceased. They are both very long coffin roads and it is entirely understandable that people would need frequent rests along the way.'
