6 Borve, Berneray

6 Borve, Berneray

6 Borve was created in 1900, when the Congested Districts Board for Scotland persuaded the South Harris Estate to break up Borve Farm and re-allocate the land as crofts. 

Croft 6 was allotted to Angus MacAskill. It later passed to his son John.

In 1978 a new house, Morven, was built on a feu close to the croft house.
