92 Rose Cottage Belnacraig

Rose Cottage or Tailors Cottage

Rose Cottage is situated near the top of the Craig at Belnacraig . It was originally a two roomed cottage which had a tin roof until it was slated about 20 years ago. In the 1930's it was occupied by Effie Leslie. In the 1970’s it was owned by Ken Cruickshank, a contributor to this site. In the past few years it has been completely modernised and enlarged.

In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s it was home to the Fraser Family who were tailors.

Two tailors in Rose Cottage can be seen in this photograph. The photograph was taken about 1900 and the Tailors are presumably William Fraser who would have been about 32 and his nephew Alexander Fraser aged then about 29
