Artist's Description

Gearrannan Blackhouse Village. Carloway- Isle of Lewis.

Blackhouses were occupied by generations of crofting families until the early 1970s

The old houses are a conservation area since there are not many of these styles of houses left.

The low setting of the houses and the thatch were built for hebridean weather and all the building materials were natural and found locally.
