From Sollas, the road that heads towards Bayhead is known as the Committee Road. It is called this as it was organised by a committee charged with providing famine relief in the 1840s. This part of the Hebrides, now a quiet backwater of many people, like other similar areas throughout the islands hides an extraordinary history.
