I always understood 'chaumer' as having the same meaning as a 'bothy' - in other words a stone farm building built to accommodate the unmarried male farmworkers. I also understand that this word was more common than bothy in the NE of Scotland, and that it derives from the French 'chambre' (bedroom). Scots has many words originating in French.
