Description: Suisnish, south of Inverarish, Island of Raasay. Inverness-shire. The photograph shows the Raasay Ironstone shipment pier, constructed to load the ore onto steamers. This T-shaped pier constructed of hand-mixed and reinforced concrete is 380 feet long and 25 feet wide. The pier frontage is 150 feet. The ore conveyor runs the length of the pier from the hopper to the 50 feet high ore conveyor loading-tower on the pierhead. The pier was designed by F.A. MacDonald and Partners, C.E. Glasgow and built by Robert McAlpine and Sons with teams of Irish labourers. It is still in good condition today.
