Scope and Content Stables, Cluny Castle, Highland, from south-south-east This shows part of the south elevation of the rubble-built stables. The chevrons on the two loft doors complement the pigeon flight-holes on the loft gablets. These doors gave access for loading and unloading the hay loft on the first floor above the stables. The carriage house and part of the stables have since been converted to a saw mill to replace the original estate saw mill which is now ruinous. 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.
