Scope and Content Stables, Cluny Castle, Highland, from south-south-east This shows two arched entrances on the south elevation of the carriage house. There was a third arched entrance on the right which has been enclosed with masonry and a window inserted when the cottage was extended. The carriage house has now been converted to a saw mill to replace the former estate saw mill, which is now derelict. 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.
