Archaeology Notes

NL94NE 25 97114 46089

Croft-house and steading. These thatched and hip-roofed buildings of thick-walled Hebridean type occupy a site on Cnoc Bhiosta.

The buildings, which probably date from the first half of the 19th century, are grouped in a linear plan comprising dwelling, store, and barn, and are associated with a walled enclosure which remains partly in use as a stackyard. Buildings of a later date, which have walls of lesser thickness and roofs of tarred felt, adjoin the SE angle and the N end of the range, serving respectively as stable and byre (formerly workshop).

Field Visit (28 August 2014)

NL 97115 46096 This early 19th century cottage, listed as being flanked by byre/barn at each gable end and having ‘piended thatched roofs to cottage and one barn; tarred felt to second’. The barn to the north has a felt roof, whilst the barn to the south is in a ruinous condition, though the owner is in the process of restoring the south barn and building a new roof. The main cottage remains thatched. The whole roof, including across the ridge, has been netted and weighted down using thin ropes and stones. The stone weights run around the entire circumference of the building just above the wallhead, openings and around the chimney stacks at either end. No photographs are available for this entry.
