Sheep fank at Presmuchrach Bothy

Presmuchrach Bothy, now relocated to the Highland Folk Museum. It was originally built in the early 1900s at Presmuchrach near Dalwhinnie using approximately 65 recycled railway sleepers.

The fank at Presmuchrach Bothy looking towards Leanach Church at the Highland Folk Museum. The fank is built of dry stone walling using re-claimed stone from a ruined fank close to Dalwhinnie, Inverness-shire. It would have been used to manage and control the sheep at lambing, shearing and dipping times. In the foreground is a selection of shearing stools made from various materials.
