This Scottish cemetery is located on Gisla Road near Milan, Quebec. From Route 214 heading east toward Scotstown and near the Donald Morrison Village, take Gisla Road about 3 miles. Caution: this gravel road winds through a forest, and is very narrow. The cemetery will appear in a clearing on the right. If you visit here in the summer, be wary of mosquitos and black flies.

This cemetery is the final resting place of Scottish settlers, most of whom were evicted from the Isle of Lewis, in the Hebridean Islands, Scotland during the Highland Clearances. Buried here is Donald Morrison, (known as the Megantic Outlaw) who became a legendary figure in Eastern Canada.

We last visited this cemetery in 2016, and we photographed the tombstones. If you want to contribute to the upkeep of this cemetery, please contact Gail Farrell, 32 Willowdale St. Sherbrooke, QC, J1M 0B6
