Ironstone Hopper
This is the hopper where the iron ore from Mine No 1 was stored before being shipped out from Suisnish East Pier, just across the road.
Ironstone Mining on Raasay

Between 1912 and 1916 iron ore was extracted from ironstones that outcrop in the southern part of the Isle of Raasay. Extensive ruins of the workings and associated buildings continue to disfigure the landscape of the island.
