Barbara appears to have lived her life in West Dunnet. After her husband died she probably moved in with her daugther Mary's family nearby. She was there by the time the 1891 census was taken. This was the croft of the Young family, now a house museum called "Mary Ann's Cottage." Mary Ann (Young) Calder was Barbara's granddaughter, who lived and farmed there until she was in her 90s.

Barbara very likely died in this house, now a house museum called "Mary Ann's Cottage"
