George Bethune and Sandy Gunn337 viewsThe ever wonderful George Bethune poses with Mr. Sandy Gunn, owner of the land that the Rhian ruins sit on. Thanks to Mr. Gunn, I was able to fulfill a dream and actually stand on the spot of the Rhian house, and to walk in the ruins of the other structures at the site.

Rhian Structure267 viewsA close up of the ruins at Rhian. George Bethune theorized that this structure was build much later than the blackhouse the Hendersons would have lived in on this site, and that this structure was likely an outbuilding related to keeping livestock.

Bruce at Knockfin270 viewsI am sitting on the rubble of what was probably the grain kiln at Knockfin, Berriedale. This is the oldest spot we know our Henderson ancestors lived, during the early to mid 1700s.
