Statement of Interest

Advertisement for tender for "Brin Cottage". House similar to

(now somewhat altered) Innismount, Aludearn, former school

and schoolmaster's house designed by William Robertson, also

in 1841. Porch at Tomintoul House probably dates from 1841

with later (1861) datestone and E.C.S.W for E.C. Sutherland

Walker, who purchased Brin Estate c.1860 and built Brin House

nearby, after which Brin Cottage was probably re-named

Tomintoul, the name under which it appears on 1st ed. OS.
