Moirlanich Longhouse is a rare example of a cruck frame Scottish cottage. It is located at grid reference NN562341 in Glen Lochay near Killin in the Stirling council area, Scotland. It is owned by the National Trust for Scotland and is open to visitors, from May to September, Sundays and Wednesdays, 2.00 - 5.00 p.m.

Removal of the corrugated roof during a recent renovation revealed the remains of the original thatched roof and analysis of this has added significantly to our knowledge of thatching in Scotland.

  • When my wife and I first visited Killin in 1966 by tandem the last elderly residents of this beautifully maintained longhouse was still living a subsistence existence. No running water or electricity. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Half a mile west of the village.
  • Was closed and has odd opening times! Looks good from the outside and peaking in the windows
