Statement of Interest

This is a well detailed cottage built in the Picturesque style. Situated in a prominent position on the River Dee, it has the picturesque qualities of being both artistically set within the landscape and showing an irregularity of style. This Picturesque style became popular amongst landowners in the early nineteenth century, and there were many available pattern books with suggested designs. It is possible that this was designed by a James Henderson, using designs from the pattern books of P F Robinson. The cottage shows similar detailing to Clagganghoul, also on Invercauld Estate (see separate listing).
