Full Description

The remains of a farmstead to the south of Kildorais, Skye.

The remains of a farmstead are visible at Kildorais, Skye on 1999-2001 and 2009 vertical APs. There are three buildings with a small square-ish enclosure, possibly a kaleyard, abutting the largest of them. The largest building has three compartments and appears to be round-ended and is a probable blackhouse. One of the smaller buidings lies just to the north, almost abutting, whilst the third, lies 28m to the south. <1> <2>
