A thatched cottage has been recreated at Newtonmore's Highland Folk Museum using a photograph taken in the late 1800s as a guide.

The image is the only record of the house that stood in Grantown-on-Spey.

Volunteers with skills in building dry stone dykes and thatching recreated the cottage in the grounds of the museum.

A North American historical group which has visited the museum for the past seven years will officially open the cottage in a ceremony on 13 April.
