Blaich is a small crofting village on the Ardgour estate owned since the 15th century by the Maclean's of Ardgour.

The 2nd family of Blaich were descended from Lachlan Mor Maclean 1614-1703post son of Allan the 7th Laird of Ardgour.The cencus records of 1841 and 1851 show many of the two famlies descendants still living in and around Blaich.
