Winter Bothans in Bosta

Winter Bothans in Bosta

A group of 3 ruins above Bearn a Chruith.

These were dwellings until 1878 when the people left Bostadh due to the lack of peat.
They are in better repair than most of the ruins in Bostadh because the Kirkibost fishermen used them as bothies to save the long haul round to Dubh Thob. They moored their boats at the pier below.
