Taken earlier this year, this blackhouse in the Western Isles has lain empty for many years.
Such a shame it's fallen into such a ruinous state, but if the outer shell is fine, there's always a possibility...
In need of a caring owner to restore such a fine building Ian. Decline of the populous perhaps.
Thanks guys - the population of the Outer Hebridean islands is stable, but ageing.....which means that vital community focal points such as primary schools etc are gradually closing down. Rennovation may be possible but would be expensive in order to comply with modern building regs and there is more chance of a holiday or retirement home being constructed. This also would add less to the local community financially and socially than were it used to provide affordable housing for those on the waiting lists in Stornoway.
Nice shot well captured showing time doing it's thing, timeless capture.
