Photograph of two cottages standing side by side with gardens in the foreground.

Originally comprising a single cottage with a sod covered roof constructed for deer watcher, and described by Queen Victoria as 'The Hut', Alltnaguibhsaich grew to include a second building standing on the left that was constructed in 1849. This photograph was included in George Wilson Washington's book Photographs of English and Scottish Scenery, published in 1866.
