Dallas estate (Rhininver) purchased by Sir Robert Gordon
of Gordonstoun in 1668 and it would have been he who
built the semi-circular range of offices after the manner
of the Round Square at Gordonstoun. It was intended that
the crescent shaped steading was to have been fronted by
a house, which was never constructed. By 1798 'commodious
temporary accommodation is neatly fitted up'. The
property passed (as did Gordonstoun) to Gordon Cumming
of Altyre, Rafford and was sold by that family in 1907
to the Houldsworth family in whose possession it remains.
W L Carruther's drawings (NMR) show clearly the curved
range of the late 17th century building incorporated in
the later additions.
W L Carruthers also designed the stables and other estate
buildings grouped to rear of Dallas Lodge; of these only
Kennels Cottage, Netherwood and Dallas Cottage are
included in listing and are itemised separately.
