Geordie’s Cottage
Geordie's Cottage

Geordies cottage was originally occupied by the workers at Killiehuntly Farm. The traditional but and ben cottage was enhanced by the addition of two extensions, one to form an entrance vestibule and the other housing the kitchen. This opened up the interior to be more spacious, allowing for a large sitting room, two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor, along with a twin room upstairs in the attic with an adjacent shower room. GRAS’s restoration of the original structure uses traditional materials and techniques, while the interior is enhanced with wood-lined walls throughout. The sitting room features exposed stonework and a wood-burning stove that provides a comforting and attractive focal point.
