It developed around a road junction. North is the road to Ness; west takes the traveller to Carlowaymarker and the West Sidemarker; south runs the road to Stornowaymarker. It is known as being the location of the highest concentration of Scottish Gaelic speakers in Scotlandmarker (74.7% of the population).

In the early 2000s, controversy hit the area as one of Europe's largest windfarms was planned for Barvas Moor. The Scottish Government rejected the proposals in early 2008.
