No 1 mine buildings
Prior to the outbreak of the First World War, the Coatbridge-based ironmasters, Baird & Co, purchased Raasay in order to exploit the iron ore discovered on the island in 1893. The company invested heavily in constructing the necessary infrastructure, and this picture shows the remains of the main hauler house and the compressor house associated with No 1 mine. Unfortunately for Baird & Co, the mine did not prove commercially valuable, and they subsequently sold the estate to the Scottish Board of Agriculture in 1921-22.
