Architecture Notes

Achleek House was built by Allan MacDougall in around 1807. It is harled white and has a slated roof, and is three bays wide and two storeys high. A central doorway is reached by four modern concrete steps. The upper windows are square and smaller than the lower windows. The slightly overhanging eaves and exposed roof timbers highlight the start of a change in house design during the early 19th century. The wall built onto the west side of the house suggests the original presence of a small single storey pavilion or an enclosed yard.
