The analytical demolition (including survey and photographic recording) of a post and beam cottage within the backlands of 96 High Street, Grantown on Spey was undertaken by Glasgow University (GUARD) in September 1995. The work included the demolition and partial excavation of the house, and backland plot. It revealed that the structure dated from the beginning of the 19th century, though the timber frame for the building appeared to be considerably earlier in date and utilised an all wood construction technology (hardwood dowels held the frame together). The work revealed four main (dateable) phases of construction and evidence that indicated that the building had originally had an earthen floor to the N and a cobbled byre end to the S. <1>
