This cottage, which is situated in a dense conifer plantation on the left (S) bank of the Allt Mor, stands to gable height on the NE, where there is a fireplace at ground-floor level, but elsewhere the walls have been reduced to no more than 0.7m in height. There is a central entrance in the SE side. This cottage is depicted roofed on the 2nd edition of the OS 6-inch map (Inverness-shire 1902, sheet XLVIA), and it appears to have replaced an earlier farmstead comprising a range and a smaller building, both depicted roofed on the 1st edition of the map (1874, sheet XLVIA). Nothing is now visible of this second building, which stood on the SW side of a garden.
Lubeauchten is recorded in the Ordnance Survey Name Book (Inverness-shire No. 1, p.53) as `a small old farmsteading the dwelling house and outhouses of which are one storey high, thatched, and in very bad repair, the property of the Right Hon. The Earl of Seafield of Castle Grant'.
