'Ardmaree', Borve

This house, named for the area within which it is situated, was the home of tailor Donald MacDonald and his family from the 1850s. It later passed to his son John who, after having served in the military, returned home to work as a fisherman and stone mason, building the sturdy wall that surrounds the property. His daughter Christy Mary inherited the house, and she passed it to her son Donald MacLean.

Subsequently it passed to lobster fisherman John Angus MacKillop, who lived here with his family.

'Ardmaree' is referred to as 'house no 65' in the croft history of the area.
