The older part of Stable Cottage was probably once a late 16th or early 17th century bastle, though it has been much altered, and in the 19th century it was three separate cottages. There is a local tradition that there were fireplaces in the attic, which is believed to have been a hide-out for a Jacobite refugee in the later 17th century.
