This iron ore mine was to the west of Inverarish Ore Mine 1. Its main use was by William Baird and Co of the Gartsherrie Iron Works during the Great War. Bairds bought both Raasay and Rona to secure an ore supply, Spain not being easily accessible in the war. The mines were worked with prisoner of war manpower.
