An imposing late neo-classical villa built for Lt Col John Farquharson of the East India Company. James Henderson was an architect based in Aberdeen. Though lying on the edge of Tarland village Corrachree falls within Logie Coldstone parish due to the old parish boundary running along the Whitely Burn. Photographs from the 1970s show that the harling is recent and that the balustraded parapet to the porch replaces earlier cast-iron railings. And that a single storey lean-to, columned cloister range has been removed from the courtyard.
