Moirlanich Longhouse

Near Killin

An outstanding example of a traditional cruck frame cottage and byre, dating from the mid 19th century. The building has been little altered and retains many of its original features, such as the 'hingin' lum' and box beds. Moirlanich was home to at least three generations of the Robertson family: the last member left in 1968.

The cottage is furnished according to archaeological evidence. A small adjacent shed displays a rare collection of working and 'Sunday best' clothes found in the Longhouse and an exhibition interprets the history and restoration of the building
