Auchmore is a traditional building of some quality. Its fine little-altered condition adds to its rarity as an early example with distinguishing widely spaced bays. Sited on a gentle hillside overlooking the former settlement of Milltown it was 'formerly the dower house of Allargue which is of similar date but embedded in mid 19th century additions' (Shepherd).
