The Tholtans known as ‘The Terrace’ at Glen Rushen.

Formerly miners cottages, when I was there today I counted 7 front door entrances but there could have possibly been an other one at an adjacent building!?

The stepped back image of the tholtan with 3 upper windows appears to have been the home of a more senior mining employee.
