This is a good example of one of the early houses in Ballater, strategically placed as part of the row of houses at the immediate entry into the town from across the River Dee. Situated so close to the Bridge and on the entry road into Ballater, it adds considerable value to the streetscape of the town. It has a grandeur that is in contrast to the surrounding cottages and smaller villas, gained by its size and also in its use of finely squared and coursed granite.
Ballater was a planned town, founded in the late eighteenth century by the local laird, Francis Farquharson of Monaltrie, to provide accommodation for the increasing number of tourists to the nearby Pannanich Wells.
Undergoing conversion into flats (2005).
Changed from category B to C(S) in 2006.
