EHG5515 - Building survey - Tanera Mor



Catherine Dagg


Sept-Oct 2017


An audit of cultural heritage resources on the island of Tanera Mor, particularly standing buildings with potential for refurbishment, was carried out by C Dagg in 2017. The aims of the evaluation were to give an approximate date of construction, alterations and abandonment for each building, to link them with any known historical facts and allow an informed decision on any proposals for development. The evaluation attempted to cover all dwelling houses, barns and byres, on the assumption that the latter may well stand on the footings of earlier buildings, and all examples of these types, whether roofed and in use, reduced to footings or lost from the archaeological record. This evaluation did not cover the herring station complex, which has been covered by a separate investigation. Other archaeological features, including structures, dykes and areas of cultivation are covered by a separate archaeological report. <1>
