|The old abandoned village of Tockmal on the Oa is about half a mile inland from Soldier's Rock and a couple of miles from Kintra Farm.
|The quality of land round about is very poor - some of the houses are now sitting in bogs, presumably they were artificially drained when people lived in them.
|They are now left to the Scottish Black-face sheep - hardy animals. This lamb can only have been a few hours old.
|There are a lot of buildings at Tockmal, many can be seen still standing but there is evidence of many more that have all but disappeared.
|In addition to the buildings there are a lot of substantial earthworks such as these parallel walls enclosing a sort of road. I have no idea what they were used for - but a great deal of labour was involved in building them.
