Rose Cottage is thought to be the oldest villa in Aberfeldy. The earliest building on site, 1842, was a shoemaker's stance, and is almost certainly incorporated into the 1869 villa, rebuilt by a customs and excise officer. By 1899 the building was feued to Alexander Campbell, grocer from Kingussie, who was required to spend ?700 restoring the property.
