My ancestors, Louttits, Spences and Firths lived at Crootaing (various spellings)from 1841 to at least 1949. Is this Crootaing or the quarry house which I believe lies just below it.

That's Crootaing, Quarry house is further along a wee bit towards Hoxa head. My Uncle owns Quarry House and my Auntie owns Crootaing.
