  1. Hiya,

    Had a great view of those cottages from a flat I used to live in, always fancied going for a walk up to see them close up – until someone told me they’d stayed derelict after a house fire that killed the family living there. Kinda put me off pursuing it, but still interested to see your photos!

    Great site, btw, love it!

    • Hi Peter,
      I am visiting the island for a week on 3rd March 2018 and would like to research Carnane Cottages history while I am there. Is there anything you can tell me about this?
      Kind regards,

  2. Hi,
    I left the island when I was 18 and the story I was told when i was younger was that there was a tragic fire in the cottages which caused several fatalities- sadly some of them children. no one lived there again. this would have been possibly late 60s
