Highland Folk Museum - 11

Here we see inside The Shepherd's Bothy, which is located close to Aultlarie Farmhouse.

It is constructed from 65 re-used railway sleepers. The building gave shelter to the shepherd during (often snowy) spring lambing. It was also used as accommodation for men helping with the summer sheep sheering. The main living room includes the shepherd's bed, stove, table, chair, tools of his trade and his few requisite personal possessions.

Life was tough in those days!
