Thatched cottage, Hungladder, Skye

The thatched cottage pictured here is situated at Hungladder in the north of Skye. It was the home of the MacKinnon family until well into the 1980s. The tidy, well-maintained thatch, held securely with net weighted with rocks, gradually deteriorated when not replaced, and the house became uninhabitable. At the time of writing (2011) it is in a completely ruinous state.
