Blackhouse Interior - Cottar's House (2)
The living quarters inside the Cottar's house at Baile Gean in Newtonmore. The central stone hearth is common to highland blackhouses, and the low chairs are arranged around the central peat fire. This type of modest house was a typical family dwelling, and is likely the kind of house our Henderson ancestors occupied in Knockfin.
