Shandwick

Shandwick is a compact village with an unusual feature, two of its streets are in separate halves, presumably because the houses in between have disappeared. Many of the Ross’s in Shandwick are said to be descendants of Ross’s evicted from Glencalvie near Ardgay during the Highland Clearances of the 19th century, thus bringing new blood into the community.
