Description

Mid 19th century. Single storey traditional 4-bay cottage. Drystone boulder construction with rounded angles, buttress at NW and turn walling in gableheads. Off-centre door in S elevation, small windows. Small gabled wing to SW. Piended heather thatched roof (c.1982 re-thatch).

INTERIOR: 4 pairs of crucks (couples) of which 3 are reconstructed in whole or in part. Jointed at elbows, pinned with wooden pegs. Stone flagged floor.

Statement of Interest

De-scheduled (2003). This cottage was built in the 19th century on the site of the Battle of Culloden. The cottage now forms part of the National Trust for Scotland's museum complex. The building was believed to be standing at the time of the battle until archaeological evidence discounted this and dated the building to mid 19th century. The association, although erroneous, with the battle has nonetheless added to the building's historic interest.
