But ‘n Ben

A but ‘n ben is a small 2 roomed house in Scotland, the but end being the kitchen and ben being the bedroom. This little quaint thatched-roof cottage in Plockton really epitomized my idea of a but ‘n ben complete with an old plow and wooden barrel to add to the atmosphere. Perhaps this was just an outhouse to the main large house in the background or maybe was a small rental holiday house. Whatever it was so nice to see an authentic old building in such good condition with the well painted white walls and varnished front door.
