In 1995, the cottage was renovated as a holiday let. The outside of the property was restored to reflect the traditional style of blackhouses keeping the original charm. Inside, the property has been dry lined with added insulation behind,
in addition to the rubble insulation between the two outer walls. This makes the cottage warm and cosy even in the middle of winter.
The board in the shed has been made from fragments of artefacts found in the ruins of the old barn and byre when the ground was prepared for the new shed in the field
