Castlebay-gate

A 1939 newspaper article reports that:-

“The ancient wrought-iron gate that once guarded the entrance to Kisimul Castle, the ruined island fortress in the Outer Hebrides of the Chiefs of Barra, has been discovered in the neighbouring island of North Uist, a mile or two from the village of Lochmaddy, where it is in use as the base of a peat-stack …the present owner has promised the gate shall be restored to Kisimul.”img_0712Can anyone tell me if it was?
