30 Backhill

30 Backhill

This house, built during the early 1850s, was the home of fisherman Norman MacLeod and his family. Following his death in 1904, it passed to daughter Christina and her husband Donald Campbell, also a fisherman. Following Donald's death the house passed to Christina's niece Christine MacLeod, and then to ship's captain Angus MacLean and his family.

It is now a holiday home.

The property is referred to as 'house no 20' in Bill Lawson's croft history of the area. It should not be confused with 'house no 30', which is also in Backhill.
