Ruins at south end of Belnahua
Ruins at south end of Belnahua
Belnahua is one of the Slate Islands in the Firth of Lorn in Scotland, known for its slate quarries. It lies 1.5 miles (2.4 km) north west of Luing west of Argyll, and east of the Garvellachs. Although it once had a population of nearly 200 people, it has been uninhabited since World War I. Famed for its slate, the island has been considerably denuded by its quarrying. Deep water-filled cuttings and the ruined slate workers cottages remain as a testament of this industry.
