The Emigrants Stone, Cornaigmore

Hundreds of families emigrated from Tiree during the second half of the 19th century, most never to return. Two men from Cornaig decided to roll this huge stone over so that they might be remembered. They left the next day. The stone serves as a memorial to all those who emigrated.
