HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: A time-capsule of crofting life
To the other side are stables for animals, a cart-storage area, and a barn. In front of the house is a small stone cubbyhole for keeping peat dry, and a rain barrel stands in one corner to collect water running off the roof. Water for drinking had to brought from a well far across the hillside, where you can see a small flag waving above the peat.
Mary Ann's Cottage is very well signposted off the A836 at Dunnet. Take the turnoff to Dunnet village and follow the signs, turning left at a point whee the road bends. There is a small parking area behind the cottage.
