Description

Unusually modest-scale, 2-bay (door and window) corrugated-iron clad timber-framed cottage/bothy, approximately 2 metres high to eaves level, set back from the road and in its own garden. Piended roof, cut by an off-centre single-flue axial masonry chimney stack. The door (N elevation) is simple and timber boarded (as are those inside), a timber hood above; windows (one on either long-wall) 4-paned sash and case set in timber bands. There are two interior spaces, a cast-iron fireplace and timber mantelpiece in the living room, a narrow horizontal window over the presumed cooking area in the W elevation, presumably a modification. The house is a rare survivor of a corrugated iron house of such small scale, and presumably dates from the latter part of the 19th - early 20th centuries.

Statement of Interest

Although facing the road, the cottage is on the north west bank of Loch Mhor and may have been a fishing bothy.
