Ice House
Ice House
In the days before electricity, ice houses were in widespread use. In winter, when the loch froze, blocks of ice would be cut and stacked in the ice house, which has thick walls to insulate it from the outside temperature, and where the ice would not melt. Ice was thus available in summer and was used to cool and store food.
