Full Description

Earlier 19th century, single storey terrace of estate cottages, three 3-bay dwellings now as 2. Coursed rubble, painted tooled margins. Each dwelling with centre door and flanking windows; middle door now blocked as window; lattice pane casements; end and ridge paired coped diamond stacks set on square bases; slate roof with deep eaves. <1>

Surveyed by the Assynt's Hidden Lives project in December 2009. Two conjoined cottages built as one stone-built structure with a slate roof, on the north side of Baddidarach Road. The building is one storey, with chimneys at either end. There is one door in the centre of the south face of the building, and one door in the small extension on the north of the building at the west end. The front elevation of the building is symmetrical with four windows on either side of the door; the chimneys are also symmetrically placed. The windows at the back (N elevation) are not symmetrical. The building is still in use as a dwelling but appeared to be unoccupied at the time of survey. <2>
