Plans to build a replica 17th century creel house at Glencoe Visitor Centre have been lodged.
The project aims to give a glimpse of how people lived at the time of the infamous 1692 massacre in the idyllic glen.
The National Trust for Scotland (NTS), who own the centre, is also offering people with an interest in Scottish history the chance to learn the ancient skills used in historic housebuilding.
A spokeswoman said: “The aim of this project is to enhance the quality of the visitor experience at the NTS Glencoe Visitor Centre by providing an example of a traditional dwelling from around the time of the massacre in 1692.
“The building would be a reconstruction of a single storey building, built using traditional techniques and materials including turf, stone, timber, heather, wattle and earth.
“It is proposed that the reconstruction comprises a ‘creel house’, a kind of build common in the 17th century in the highlands, where wattling formed a key element.
“No examples survive of this type of building and so a reconstruction would present a significant contribution to Scotland’s vernacular architecture story.”
The location of the creel house – also known as a turf house – is close to the existing visitor centre, on open ground immediately to the east of its woodland setting.
