Farm Buildings, Kyle of Lochalsh

This image is from the collection of historian and folklorist Isabel F Grant and shows farm buildings at Kyle of Lochalsh. In her book 'Highland Folk Ways', I F Grant describes the various types of buildings traditional to the Highlands and surrounding areas and details their methods of construction.

The building on the left has a corrugated iron roof. The gable end of this building has been raised by adding a wooden insert.

The building on the right has a traditional thatched roof that has been secured using rope weighted with stones. The thatch appears to have fallen away at the gable end of the building, leaving it open to the elements.
