Mairi Hedderwick, in her book “An Eye on the Hebrides”, uses this lovely term “Pudding and Plain” when describing some of the vernacular architecture of Tiree. These particular styles describes buildings which are often juxtaposed, ‘pudding’ or ‘spotty’ houses, where the mortar only between the stones of the structure is painted, and ‘plain’ ones which are completely white, but no less striking, with their black roofs and often interesting structural appearance.
