Factor's House and Estate Office, 1880, in familiar Barham style, replacing the early 19th-century farmhouse. The great barn, 1851, (now much altered) was almost certainly built as a wool barn; now used as a salmon hatchery. Pierced with lancet windows, it rises above the river like a Romanesque church, formerly comprising: "Barn, Byre and Stable, with Dairy and Cheese store on the ground floor of the near end, and with sleeping accommodation above". Creating a U-plan in matching style, the parallel coach house and stables, 1871-2, was Barham's first concrete building at Ardtornish. Cattle court, 1890, also of concrete.

Archaeology Notes

NM74NW 12.01 NM 70479 47315

The store (NM74NW 12.02) is connected by a concrete by a concrete link to the Coachhouse (by Samuel Barham, 1871), its detail similar to that of the wool store but simpler and more sparing. Again it is of concrete, perhaps the first such building in Scotland.

J Gifford 1992.

This building cannot be identified and located from the available map evidence.
