Get a Scot to build homes (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

cottages

'homes' is the definition.
(I know this)

'get a scot to build' is the wordplay.
'to build' indicates an anagram.
'get'+'a'+'scot'='getascot'
'getascot' anagrammed gives 'COTTAGES'.

(Other definitions for cottages that I've seen before include "Small house in village or countryside" , "Small single-storeyed dwellings" , "Get a cost, oddly, for the small houses" , "Small one-storied houses" , "Small single-storeyed houses" .)
