The picture is of the home of Professor Nisbet who has rented then owned the house since the 1940's.

He has maintained the house as it was when he first arrived and is typical of cottages in the early 1900's

It has no water supply or plumbed sanitation. It has no electricity and heating is supplied by a log fire and cooking and lighting is by gas lamps. Water has to be taken from the river 200yd away down (and up again) a very steep slope.

It has the original doors, windows and roof and inside it has pine linings.

Professor Nisbet has writted articles on the Upperton Clachan
