Lundale, Lewis

From "Placenames of Lewis and Harris" by D Maciver F.E.I.S:

Liunndal : This is not hlunnr, roller for hauling boats, but the boat itself ; hlunndal, boat place.

Lundale is situated on the mainland side of the Bernera Bridge. It is the first village one comes to on the way into Bernera. There were only 4 tenants at the beginning of the 19th century and it was cleared very early to make a sheep farm as part of Linshader. It was resettled as 6 crofts in 1892 largely with people from Tobson.

Families in Lundale lived in the following crofts:

Macdonald: crofts 1, 2, 4, 6

Macaulay: 3

Macleod: 5
