Tacksman's House Interior
An interior view of the Tacksman's blackhouse at Baile Gean, Newtonmore. The central peat hearth his hosting a wonderful smokey fire. The low chairs are similar to what would have been typical furniture in such a house, along with the dirt floors. Tartan fabrics hang on the walls to better insulate against the cold winds, and provide decor.
