The croft in the photo is known as Rientraid. My wife and I spent our honeymoon there, and many happy family holidays thereafter.
My Daughter Georgina & Duncan live there now. Modernising, & growing crops, first time for years.
Bunk house available.
Any history would be great.
Did you know the midget submarines & the X Craft trained here for the raid on The Tirpitz WW2?
Sorry for the delay in replying, I didn't realise the facility existed to exchange comment. Great to learn that the house is in full time use. This was much needed to save it from decaying. I did know about the X craft, I worked for Lord Jellicoe who held the lease for many years. Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll give more detail.
My Grandfather lived here as a child. He was born in 1895 and walked to school @ Unapool from Rheantraid. He was one of a family of 10. When he married he was employed as a shepherd and lived at Glencoul. My Mother who was born in 1940 can remember seeing the submarines in Loch Glencoul,although the submariners thought they were going about their exercises unseen!
