Scope and Content Mill Cottage, Cluny Castle, Highland, from west This shows the rubble-built cottage where the miller who worked in the nearby estate meal watermill would have lived. The cottage was entered through a wooden porch with a triangular tiled roof. The window above the porch has been replaced and the dormers in the attic were later additions. The cottage was probably built in the early 19th century at the same time as the nearby mill. The vast majority of watermills that still existed in Scotland at the end of the 20th century were built after 1750 in response to improvements in farming methods. When a mill closed it was usually converted to another use and a few, like Aberfeldy Mill, Perth & Kinross, have been opened as visitor attractions. Cluny Castle was built in 1805 for the Macphersons of Cluny and stands on the site of an earlier castle which was destroyed by fire in 1746. William Laidlaw Carruthers, Inverness, designed the north-west wing and the Queen Anne Revival-style porch c.1890. Many of the estate buildings were also built when the castle was rebuilt, including gate lodges, stables, meal mill, saw mill and walled gardens. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
