Scope and Content View of Glenure House from north, Argyll and Bute Glenure is an excellent example of an 18th-century laird's house. The principal block was built for Colin Campbell c.1740, and a free-standing kitchen wing was added in 1751. The house was converted to a shooting lodge in the early 20th century. To the left is the main block built for Colin Campbell of Glenure and furnished by him after his marriage in 1749. Two-storeyed with an attic, it is rectangular on plan. This main front is five-bayed with a central doorway, now enclosed in a modern porch. To the right is the free-standing kitchen wing which was erected in 1751 to the designs of Duncan Campbell, a Stirling mason. This wing was designed as an independent house of conventional plan, but was linked to the main block by a corridor. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
