Standing Building Recording (19 July 2010 - 14 October 2010)

An historic building record was required prior to a mixed development at East Beechwood farm, near Inverness.

The farm appears to have originally been built in the early 19th century as a range of steadings around a central courtyard. This layout was subsequently altered and expanded to create a main cattle and bull byre complex to the west with a large tractor shed and cow byre to the east. Additional smaller buildings are located to the north comprising a former stables block. The farmhouse is located a distance away from the main steading to the north-east and is a three-bay two-storey farmhouse with a single-storey annexe to the rear. Looking at the cartographic evidence, the farmhouse first appears in the 1870s Ordnance Survey map, although could well be contemporary with the earliest parts of the main farm steading.
