OS 6" map, Banffshire, 2nd ed., (1905)

The older part of Auchintoul House dates from about the 16th century. The walls of this part are immensely thick and strong.

The eastern wing of the house was built in 1711-12.

Anon 1916.

A plain rectangular mansion. No date-stones were seen on the building and little evidence of antiquity with the exception of the walls of the west wing which are probably of the 16th century. The whole building has the style of early 18th century. The house is now semi-derelict and empty.

Visited by OS (WDJ) 15 September 1964.

No change.
