Traditional Blackhouse & Steading

This photograph shows the house and steading complex with it's turf and thatch roofing.

The roof maintenance of such a complex of buildings must have been a major task. Even the peat stack (for fuel) was built with great skill, blending in with the adjacent buildings.
