Perth & Kinross
A fine survival of an 18th century Celtic Cuppil cottage that predates the settlement of Pitlochry surrounding it. Distinct within the streetscape because of its corrugated-iron roof (with thatch surviving beneath!), the cottage has evidence for a hanging lum, the former fireplace around which family life would have been played out. An ‘A’ listed monument, Sunnybrae Cottage is in the care of Historic Environment Scotland (HES).
Sign up for this rare opportunity to see the remains of the archaeological investigation which took place inside the cottage, peeling back centuries of building and use. Your visit usually starts outside the building, looking at the architecture.
Small parties of up to 6 at a time can then take it in turns to access the interior of the cottage, accompanied by a guide.
Guided tour at 11:00 (max 12 places); drop-in session 14:00-15:00 (NB: Max 6 people able to access interior at any one time)
Booking essential: email ArgyllsLodgingAdmin@hes.scot by noon Thurs 14 September 2023.
