Field Visit (January 1970 - December 1991)

A survey of deserted settlements in Unst by June Owers. The survey includes photographs, sketches and historical information.

Note (26 September 2011)

A plan of this farmstead was drawn by June Owers in her survey of deserted settlements in Unst (1970). It depicts a farmstead comprising a former croft house aligned NW-SE with a range of two buildings set parallel to the dwelling on its SW side. A yard is connected to the farmstead on its SE side.

A farmstead comprising one roofed T-shaped building of three compartments, and one enclosure is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Orkney and Shetland (Shetland) 1882, sheet viii). A well is depicted to the W of the farmstead.
