stone ruinSummer 2019 - Throughout the Western Isles you will see evidence of abandoned Blackhouses, many were left either due to emmigration or past eviction. Often the stone is re-used in the construction of walls and renovations or the remains turned into a garden shed. it's hard to imagine the ammount of work required to gather together all the stone required to build a house, all I can think is that the people of old were generally very fit and strong. The lack of timber limited the building style,with roofs constructed of timber washed up on the coast, ship wrecks and inherited timbers from other abandoned houses. It is recorded that when peple were evicted from their homes, they took the roof timbers with them in order to build the roof on the next house.
