Repair of Shooting Lodges on the Estate.

Morenish House (1862).

Morenish Lodge, now a hotel, was constructed in 1843-4 and let to shooting parties from 1844. John Harrison's 2003 report on Ben Lawers (RCAHMS Ms 1155/6, p.263) includes a description of the accommodation in 1852, noting that the tenant of the Morenish and Glenlyon shootings for that year found the lodge inadequate.

The Lodge stands on the site of a farmstead depicted on John Farquharson's 1769 Survey of the North Side of Loch Tay (National Archives of Scotland, RHP 973/1, Plan 3). Farquharson shows four buildings and an enclosure, and this was one of six settlements mapped by him on the farm of Ardvoile.
