NG5636 : Railway Trackbed

taken 6 years ago, near to Inverarish, Isle of Raasay, Scotland

Railway Trackbed
Railway Trackbed
This is the trackbed of the railway used to get the ironstone down from where it was stripped off the land surface to No 1 mine, and then onwards down to the pier at Suisnish. I was exceedingly glad that I happened to have a pair of rubber boots with me, because the ground on both sides of it was extremely wet and boggy.
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.
