Historical Note. The Schoolhouse is one of a number of buildings of its type constructed by local authorities in the Highland area, but is one of the few now remaining. It is believed to have been used as a school until the 1930's serving the needs of children from the surrounding area. There would have been just one class and it is possible that the teacher lived on the premises. The journeys made by pupils would often have been hazardous; a report in the Northern Times in September 2007 records that pupils often had to use stilts to cross the swollen river Einig to get to the school. 

The Schoolhouse was an MBA project in 2008. The exterior of the building has been restored as far as possible in keeping with the original.
