Statement of Interest

This is a good example of one of the early houses in Ballater, strategically placed as one of a row of houses at 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 retains much of its original character used in a simple carefully proportioned composition, and is a good example of local traditional building materials. Ballater was a planned town, instigated 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.
