Scope and Content Cottage from south-south-east, Stables, Cluny Castle, Highland This shows the cottage at the east end of the stable block. The original frontage consisted of the central doorway and the 12-paned window on the right. The cottage was enlarged by enclosing a carriage bay to the left of the door and creating another window. The dormer in the roof is also a modern addition. 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. The stable range was built in the early 19th century, probably around the same time as the rebuilding of the castle. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
