Continuing with our trip to the Isle of Lismore, Scotland, May 2015. I like to try and make a record of some of the dwellings, old & renovated, on each island we visit (most are taken from the car window….husband drives, so I can shot). Its surprising how each island differs, there are crofter cottages on Lismore and in the 19th century lime was quarried, which mean we also find quarriers cottages, a lot have been renovated to holiday cottages. Like all the islands, there are a great many direlict cottages, this could be due to the clearances or people have just left the island for work on the mainland and never returned.
At the heritage centre you can visit the below cottage that they have restored to its former glory…… it was a bit late in the day when we stopped to get a coffee, and the cottage door was closed, but maybe next time we visit. I was lucky and found a cottage not to far away that had been restored to a holiday cottage, it looks very similar to the one at the heritage centre.
The next photo is of the cottage I found.
There are other types of buildings which I have also included.
