Statement of Interest

Listed for group value with Coulnakyle House which it was built to accompany and which it complements in diminutive form. Coulnakyle was built for Sir James Grant about 1770, apparently as the Head Forester's House and later a shooting lodge: the later cottage would have been part of the services of the house. Former stables and outbuildings are sited behind the cottage.
