Interior of the Weaver's Cottage
A small highland blackhouse structure at Baile Gean that is devoted to weaving. This loom is a re-construction of a period loom, and is actually used by museum staff to create tartan fabrics. In a highland village, not everyone worked the land. Some people earned their keep through weaving, iron smithing and shoe making.
