Scope and Content Turnip House, Shinness Steading, Highland Shinness Steading was built on the huge Sutherland estate which, by 1873, comprised almost 1.3m acres, more than 90% of the county. Shinness was originally a sheep farm, but between 1872 and 1877, the land was drained to create four new arable farms and in 1882 new buildings were erected at Shinness itself. This is the turnip house, with its sliding door, seen from the north-east. The turnip house is stone-built with a corrugated iron roof, as per the specifications of 1882. There is a blocked window beside the double door. Above the turnip house is the cattle-cake store. The four new farms created in the 1870s were Colabol, Achnairn, Achadaphris and Lubvrec. About 4,000 sheep and 80 cattle were kept at Lubvrec, but by 1914 the reclaimed land had reverted to grass and the farm, along with that at Achadaphris, had disappeared.
