Devices and Desires
Kinloch Castle (Sunday's blog) and Wee Cumbrae (Monday's) have seen devices employed that endeavoured to make life easier and safer. When the remote house (below), overlooking Loch Seaforth, on the far side of the North Harris settlement at Rhenigidale was either built or renovated, this ingenious 'roller-coaster' device (above) was constructed. It allowed materials, furniture, fridges and a Stanley range to be delivered directly from a boat. The desires of the person in charge of this project must have been fulfilled.
If you want to see for yourself, the nearest accommodation is (below) at the Gatliff hostel at Rhenigidale. A virtual tour may be taken.
