Group of traditional Hebridean-type cottages, built along either side of roadway leading towards the machair. Ten principal buildings, plus associated outbuildings. All thatch-roofed, originally, but neglected to partial ruin; some houses being incrementally re-occupied 1980's-1990's.
An outstanding example of a group of this class of architecture, in a spectacular setting. Buildings lack individual addresses, but as a coherent unit form a single listed item. Modern buildings to east not included in listing.
