Full Description

Stamford Cottage is an early-mid 19th century dwelling with a largely intact interior demonstrating authentic vernacular construction methods. The principal room to the south has a box bed, fitted press and cupboards and a timber fireplace. The roof structure features waney edge timbers and horizontal caber construction, adding to the interest, and has the remains of a heather and turf thatch beneath the tin. The gable end of the building fronts the former military road between Coupar Angus to Fort George. This portion of the road was used as a cattle droving route. Full architectural details are available in Historic Scotland's listed building description, see link at the bottom of this record. <1>
