Crumbling in Mannal

Photographed in 2006, this black-roofed house at Mannal stood next to `Hillview` and was known as `Taigh Eoghainn `ic Alasdair` after the occupants. It has since been demolished. The photo illustrates how much lower the roof of a thatched house appears to be once its thatch has been replaced with tarred felt.
