Scope and Content Detail of south doorway, Achnagairn House, Kirkhill, Inverness Achnagairn House was built c.1800, and was lavishly refurbished and extended between 1905 and 1910. The architect William Laidlaw Carruthers (d.1914) added a ballroom, service block and many fine Arts and Crafts style interior details. This shows an elegant doorway in the Gothic style. The double doors are half-glazed with panes set into a traceried design. Side windows let more light into the house, and highlight the door with its carved stone armorial panel set above. These beautifully made doors with their Gothic designs reflect similar features in the hall and drawing room. The house features a mixture of decorative styles, from Georgian Neo-Classicism, through to Gothic, and the later Arts and Crafts designs. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
