Fascinating Jane. I spent my teenage years living with my family in the Scottish Islands (North Uist) and well remember these small, tin roofed buildings, often neglected and abandoned, or used as makeshift housing for animals at that time (mid '80's). The Eco- movement hadn't really reached the Western Isles then, in fact the Causeways between the Islands had not been long opened when we arrived there (in a howling gale in November I recall).How wonderful that many of these buildings are serving a useful purpose again. It is a unique community, I am sure you will find your stay there very interesting and thought provoking.

What a beautiful place. Have a great holiday.x

What a lovely post. By coincidence, I have just done a post on my English Buildings blog about a corrugated iron building, so I have added a link there to your piece.

I love the colour of rust! What great true light, your photos have such wonderful contrasts!
