Old Pier at Suisnish
The rusty pier was built to take out the ironstone mined on Raasay between 1912 and 1916. On the left is the slipway used by the island ferry until the new pier and slipway were built in Churchton Bay.
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.
