Scope and Content Stables, Cluny Castle, Highland, from east-south-east This shows the early 19th-century, rubble-built stable range which contained stables, a carriage house, and a cottage. The carriage house was entered through the central arched entrance, with the stables in the block to the left and the cottage on the right. Above the stable are two doorways which gave access to the granary or hay loft. The stables were originally fitted with stalls where the horses used for riding and to pull carriages were fed and rested. Horses were properly cared for as replacements were expensive to buy. The stable block was an important building on the estate as its size and style of architecture showed the wealth and standing of the owner. 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.
