Stone Cottage Overlooking Sea on Scottish Island

P5042143-lo-res

Everything here is perfect. It’s one of the buildings where I just say to myself, oh yeah! The rounded, angled-out corners, the proportions, the deep wall openings, the red roof.

According to an historical account which I read, some 14 farm families were forced to leave their land by landlords in the mid-1800s, and resettled on a more remote and less fertile part of the island. This is one of the dwellings; in its day, it would have had a thatched roof.

And with this I conclude posts from Scotland. I’m back in the saddle at home and back at work on Small Homes.

    I WISH WE COULD HAVE A LOOK AT THE INTERIOR OF ALL OF THESE HOMES AND PLACES. IF THE EXTERIOR IS WORTH POSTING, SO LIKEWISE IS THE INTERIOR.

      I will ask Lloyd. I assume these houses were locked and the owners nowhere around. I’m sure he would have shot interior shots if he could have.
