Coast around Peanmeanach bothy and old settlement
Coast around Peanmeanach bothy and old settlement
Peanmeanach bothy and the row of now roofless "black-houses" (traditional dwellings) stand on a pebble bar to the rear of a raised beach. Peanmeanach is the most modern building and originally had a slate roof. It was probably the post office at one time. Before the coming of the Fort William/Mallaig railway (4 miles away) in the late 19th century, the sea was the main means of travel. After the railway the Peanmeanach area became relatively isolated and declined. Sheep, just visible on the grass of the raised beach, were removed from the Ardnish peninsula in c.1980.
