Moirlanich Longhouse

Historic Buildings & Homes

Moirlanich Longhouse, Near Killin, Stirlingshire, FK21 8UW

    An outstanding example of a traditional cruck frame cottage and byre, dating from the mid 19th century.

    The building has been altered little and retains many of its original features, such as the Hingin' lum and box beds.

    Dating back to the early 19th century, Moirlanich is situated in Glen Lochay. The house remains in outstanding condition, giving you a rare, near untouched insight into a historic building. The interior remains remarkably intact, and has been unusually constructed, with two drystone rubble skins, cruck couples and cabers.

    Moirlanich was home to at least three generations of the Robertson family, with the last member leaving in 1968. The cottage is furnished according to archaeological evidence. A small adjacent building 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.
