Old McBride Croft

The old croft was located about 1 mi. north of Shannochie (1.3 mi. on the Carn Baw dirt road.) It was abandoned several hundred years ago and all that is left are stones for the foundation.
When Thomas and I were there in early 2000 it was in the middle of a forest planted by the Forestry Commission and we couldn't find it. The trees had been harvested on my last trip in 2010. For the first time, in my three trips, the weather was good enough that we could see Ireland.
