Knockbain School at the Highland Folk Museum

A side-view of Knockbain School at the Highland Folk Museum in Newtonmore. The school was originally erected about 1925 at Knockbain by Kirkhill, 8 miles from Inverness and was moved to the museum in 1998, opening in spring 2000. It is a pre-fabricated, timber framed, iron-clad building of a kind that was common in Scotland from the mid-1800s and measures 12 metres by 6 metres. It encloses 4 timber board rooms, namely a large classroom with a range to provide heat, a cloakroom with 3 washbasins, a small teacher's room and an adjoining teacher's toilet. The picture shows the large windows incorporated into the building to give a light, airy interior.
