Description: Brora coal-pit, 0.8 km. west of Brora by the Brora River. Sutherland. A closer view of the coal-pit and rock exposures (lower part of the Jurassic Corallian and Oxford Clay). The photograph shows the small colliery workings by the River Brora. The coal raised was used in the immediate neigbourhood, at the brickworks adjacent to the mine, in the Brora Wool Mill which also supplied Brora with electric light and the local inhabitants used it as a domestic fuel.
