Description: At the pier, Suisnish, south of Inverarish, Island of Raasay. Inverness-shire. A view towards the Raasay Ironstone processing plant. Buildings seen include the five calcining kilns, the white building just left of the pier is a store, behind that to the left is the coal dump, and to the right the hopper of 4,400 tons capacity. At the top of the incline is the Pier Incline Haulier House and to the right, the crusher with the covered conveyor to the top of the kilns. The incline railway was used to take coal up from the pier to the crusher where it was mixed with the iron ore and fed to the five calcining kilns by conveyor belt. Below the kilns more conveyors took the processed ore to the hopper, from there it was loaded onto the ships.
