This building was nominated for inclusion on the Buildings at Risk Register by local interest groups in August 2011. <1>

Home Farm (High Square), James Ross, 1848; a larger version of Sabhal Mor Ostaig with corner pavilion-tower incorporating a doocot; restored following a fire by John Mackenzie, 1891. (Miers 2008).

Doocot probably built between 1810 and 1840. The doocot is a square tower measuring 4.75 m each side with three storeys, the upper storey being the nesting area. There are few doocots known on Skye, and this one was built in a particularly grand style.
