Model of a traditional Hebridean crofter's cottage, sometimes called a blackhouse (incorrectly), or a Skye crofter's cottage. These are more commonly seen in the southern Hebrides nowadays - North Uist, South Uist and Benbecula, mostly as de-roofed ruins, however, several have now been refurbished as holiday homes. Last used for habitation in the early 1960s


This is the largest of several models that we produce approx dimensions being 7.25 x 4.25 x 3 inches


Available in the more modern white colouring or in the original stone finish.

These models are cast in Crystacal R, sculpting stone plaster and hand painted in acrylic paint for longevity.


Finished with a black felted base
