1 Habost, Lochs

Until January 2007 there was a prominent building on 1 Habost, the ruin of Jimmy Tod's house, which incorporated a slaughter house, shop, weaving shed with four looms, and a garage for his bus. Originally the house was built by the Mackenzies, Clan Mhurchaid Ruaidh, Kenneth and James.

The first shop on 1 Habost was owned by Coinneach Ruadh, Kenneth Mackenzie, who moved to Stornoway and sold the croft to Alastair Macdonald, 9 Habost "Alastair Hamish".
