Old Photograph Hotel Rodel Island Of Harris Scotland

Old photograph of the hotel in Rodel, Isle of Harris, Outer Hebrides, Scotland. Located near the harbour is Rodel Hotel. This was built in 1781 and was originally home to Captain Alexander MacLeod of Berneray who had bought the Isle of Harris in 1779. Captain Alexander MacLeod proceeded to establish fishing stations and other schemes. Rodel, though, like much of the rest of Harris, was cleared beginning in 1817 by Captain MacLeod's grandson, Alexander Norman Macleod, and the population removed to Berneray and the Bays. The first tacksman was Donald Stewart, who occupied the landlord's house.
