No 39 Arnol, 1920s Typical island 'white house', preserved as a museum beside the roofless blackhouse it replaced. Although superficially less primitive, these concrete and asbestos-tiled boxes never really caught on with the local population, who remained sentimentally, if not physically, loyal to the old houses. Historic Scotland.
