East Suisnish


East Suisnish forms the southeastern part of Suisnish on the southwest coast of the Isle of Raasay in the Inner Hebrides. There is a slipway and jetty here, the latter built by the iron-founders William Baird and Company to export iron ore and is now in poor condition. The iron ore was brought from a mine inland by a 1½-mile / 2½-km long railway, which was dismantled after the mine closed in 1919. The Raasay ferry used the slipway and sheltered behind the jetty between crossings, until it moved to Clachan in 2010.
