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 (23 September 2011)

A plan of Middleton was drawn by June Owers in her survey of deserted settlements in Unst (1970). It depicts a farmstead aligned NW-SE comprising an unroofed stone built long range of three compartments. A former croft house at the SE end has a central doorway amd flanking windows on its SW side, and a further window in the NE wall. Fireplaces are depicted in each of the croft house gables.

A farmstead comprising one roofed long building within an enclosure is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Orkney and Shetland (Shetland) 1882, sheet viii).
