Black House, Isle of Skye - Scotland. The Skye Black Houses were thatched stone cottages many of which the people had to abandon in the Highlands and Islands in the 1800s. With its earthen floor and peat fire stack in the middle of it, the smoke could only escape through a hole in the roof. With no windows to shed any more light inside, the peat smoke not only blackened the walls, but made for a murky, dark interior, so giving the blackhouses their name.
