Statement of Interest

Group with Ferryman's Cottage and Nos 1-4 Port-Na-Craig Road as a designed group. Built as a coaching inn on the former Killiecrankie Road, the building was in use as a tea-room circa 1930. Purchased by the Hydro-Electric Board during the 1950s, it was semi-derelict by the end of the 1980s. Sympathetically restored and re-opened by the current owner in 1990.
