B-Group with Sundial, Walled Garden and N and S Lodges, Ballindalloch (see separate list descriptions). A finely detailed earlier-mid 19th century stable complex built for Ballindalloch House. The original Ballindalloch House, which appears on William Edgar's survey of 1745, was demolished in 1868 and replaced by a new building of the same name. Some of this later structure remains as the present Ballindalloch (although large parts of it were demolished in 1967-69). At the time of the contruction of the stable complex, it would appear that the house and estate belonged to Mr Samuel Cooper.
