Hi Ross Mcleod,
Please tell me how close to Deanich Lodge was this building, east, west, north or south and is this cottage still standing ?

I believe this is the original lodge. A covered entrance porch was added some time later. Some recent photos are available here http://users.bigpond.com/ross.macleod/deanich/

The cottage in the background of http://www.tainmuseum.org.uk/imagelibrary/picture.asp?id=179 has now gone.
