Statement of Interest

Built on land feued from the Butter Estate, Craigard and its neighbour Dundarave were built by the McNaughton family, drapers of Pitlochry. In 1889 Misses Jane A and Jessie McNaughton are listed as proprietors of Craigard with Alexander McNaughton as occupier. Alexander and James McNaughton appear as proprietors of Dundarave with James as occupier. Craigard was converted to a hotel during the 1950s, and returned to a house in 1988.
