NG3749 : Inside the Uigshader house

Inside the Uigshader house
Inside the Uigshader house
This would have been the living room of the well-preserved roofless house in Uigshader. External view: NG3749 : House in Uigshader . On the right of the doorway photographed here is the outside wall. On the left is an internal wall. The photographer has an opening which would have been the entrance doorway to his right. There is one small window in the wall of the room with the fireplace. The building had two rooms, but the opposite end wall has tumbled, so it is not possible to tell if there was another fireplace. The fireplace photographed may well have been added after the building was first constructed. Fireplaces within walls suggest a build-date of no earlier than the mid 19th century, but the rounded corners of the outside walls as well as the location of the settlement, suggest the building's origins may be a good deal older.
