Used to unload coal by John Lamont from Ruaig, who had the puffer 'Tiree'. The shore nearby was used a quarry for the new pier at Gott - AMcL.

Cidhe Iain Thèarlaich lies just south of the new Gott pier. It was built about 1910 in the making of the main pier and was used by John Lamont, Ruaig who had a puffer (called Tiree). The timber surface has gone but the concrete stanchions are still there. There is a quarry nearby where stone was blasted for the pier. Angus MacLean, Scarinish, 3/2005.
