Statement of Interest

Though in Ardgour parish Kingairloch is part of the Morvern peninsula and such formed part of the Duke of Argyll's former Morvern holdings. North Corry is situated at the head of Loch a Choire to the west of Kingairloch House. The house became part of the Achranich estate in the nineteenth century and is shown on the Achranich estate map of 1848 as "Corrie" house, predating the larger Victorian Kingairloch House. The present broadly gabled dormerheads and slim cills to the upper storey windows suggest a later rebuild or heightening.
