Full Description

Pier, c.1805 - a drystone quay, with rare survival of hand crane and well. Various dockside buildings, restored and gentrified in the 1990s, have ball finials and architraved windows proclaiming their new status. These include:
Fearann Eilean Iarmain, converted from the former Isle Ornsay General Stores of c.1812 - the 'biggest shop between Skye and Glasgow' - to a smart office, and Gallery, the former grainstore converted by Alastair Alldridge of Wittets Architects. Seaflushing lavatory, 19th century, a pyramidroofed gazebo, converted as a doocot, 1990s, but retaining its original function and fittings.
