7560: 4 Caverstay

Croft 4 was first occupied by Donald Mackinnon and then by his son Roderick.

The croft was particularly congested in the early years of the 20th century, supporting four large families of Mackinnons. The situation forced many to leave the village for Stornoway, the mainland or abroad.
