Housing, Loch Eport, North Uist

This image is from the collection of historian and folklorist Isabel F Grant and shows a cluster of houses at Loch Eport, North Uist. 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 house on the far left of the image appears to be of a type that emerged in the eighteenth century. This style of cottage can be recognised by its square ends, triangular gables and especially by the chimney flues in the gable ends.
