Remains of the early 20th century iron mining industry. The row of buildings with the arched opening is a series of kilns used in processing the ore brought down from the mines.

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.
