This log house was built in 1845 for Big John and Ann Thomson. It was constructed from trees that were felled on the property with a small side addition added by Col. Maclean in later years. The original stone fireplace is the focal point of the main floor living room/kitchen with several small bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs.
Out back you may notice a small white building: this was the hard work of students from the Earth Keepers program at a local high school in the mid 1980’s. Constructed with a concrete floor, walls of straw bales and metal shingles on the roof, its ceiling rafters are cut from wood harvested on the Crieff Hills property. Currently it is a home for our flock of hens.
