The village, which enjoyed occupation for well over 750 years, was once home to a small community and provided a livelihood, firstly through farming and fishing, and later, additionally through flax milling . The last property bid farewell to those dwelling there around 1926.

Remains of a church (pictured), homes and the mill still exist by the edge of the Loch, where the site of the village pier is still apparent, once welcoming steamships.

Old Lawers Village was privately acquired in mid-2021 by the Donnelly Family, due to their strong affection for the area and the ambience it continues to offer.

They had already enjoyed living within the Breadalbane Community, and continue to do so.

Their present aim is to simply preserve the area during their period of custodianship.

The land purchased is at the shore edge, and can be seen in dark green within this plan layout.
