The cottage has an interesting history. There is evidence that it was a carpentry workshop dating back to at least the mid 1700’s. It was owned by a Miller family and the workshop business continued to the 1950’s through subsequent generations. The grassed area to the West of the cottage is referred to in legal (sasine) records as “Mrs McCarcie’s little parcel of land”.
