Mackinnon's Pier, "a commodious little pier at a short distance from his mansion"; fishgutting and packing station, converted to stables/ steadings and later ruinous, although formed from one byre range is the chapel of St. Maol Ruadh (RC), 2000, with stained glass window by Ian Chard. Boat/coach house, c.1800,a rustic pedimented pavilion backing onto the courtyard, with rubbly engaged columns between pretty round-arched windows to upper floor. Former Campbell's Temperance Hotel, c.1880, a tall, tenement-like pair of storm-dormered buildings, echoing the commercial premises at Broadford, and the pair that formerly stood at Eilean Iarmain.
