Unish House Ruins, Waternish Peninsula, Skye. It’s possible to walk right up and touch history on Waternish Peninsula. A boggy slog from the ruins of Trumpan Church—site of a clan massacre in 1578—to Waternish Point four miles away allows you to explore thousands of years of human habitation, including the remains of Iron Age brochs (forts). The subject of this photo is Unish House, dating from the early 1600s (about the same time the Puritans crashed into Plymouth Rock). It once was the center of a fairly sizeable community. This spot is very remote even today. Try to envision life here 400 years ago… with daily chores like building and maintaining this stone wall.
