Scope and Content Ironstone miners' housing, Inverarish, Raasay This housing was designed by James Falconer for William Baird and Co Ltd to house workers in the ironstone mine they were establishing inland from Inverarish There are three rows of single-storey terraced cottages. This view shows a section, comprising two houses, of one of the rows, which resemble the better class of miners' rows in lowland Scotland, and look somewhat incongruous in this highland setting. After the mine closed in 1919 the island was acquired by the Scottish Board for Agriculture who divided much of the land into crofts. Most of the inhabitants of the island now live in these terraces.
