Scope and Content Ironstone pier, Suisnish, Raasay Ironstone mining on Raasay was developed by William Baird and Co Ltd from 1913. The stone was roasted in kilns, and shipped from a large concrete-piled steamer pier. The mines were worked intensively during the First World War, but closed soon after. This view shows the pier from the landward end, showing its concrete-piled construction, with the Isle of Skye in the background. The vessel moored to the pier is the vehicular ferry to Skye, which uses a slip to the left of the pier. This pier also served the steamers linking Raasay to the mainland and Skye. The link to Skye is now maintained by a vehicular ferry. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
