Ruined thatched house at Badicaul

The crofting township of Badicaul is close to the shore about a mile from Kyle of Lochalsh, towards Erbusaig and the other townships of Drumbuie and Duirinish. The villages of Badicaul and nearby Erbusaig remained "unimproved" ie. without solid roofs or running water, for longer than some of the other townships in the area. In this particular photograph, the railway line is just seen before the sea, cutting off the croft from the shore.
