Crofter's Hut

This is a replica of a Scottish crofter's hut. The guy who bequeathed the land for the Cape Breton Highlands National Park required that a replica be built like the one in Skye, Scotland. Skye, is where many of the Scots came from who settled in the area that is now the Cape Breton Highlands. It's pretty dark and dank inside. On the left, there is no wall. Apparently that's where you would herd in your animals and make a peat wall, for bad weather.
