Highland Folk Museum - 19

Our next port of call at the Museum is Daluaine Summerhouse.

The summerhouse was built from re-used track sleepers from the Highland Railway that came through the Spey Valley in 1863. First constructed during the early 1900s, this small dwelling is interpreted for the 1950s.

The fireplace with yellow 'Armadale' bricks from the Bathville Brick & Fire Clay brickworks (probably bought by train) is original, as is the blacksmith made pot chain.
