Glencripesdale House, c.1775 Belonging to the important surviving group of Morvern tacksman's houses, this simpler version of Laudale was built for Duncan Campbell of Glenure. Original four-pane sash windows still intact. Scattered across the wider area formerly contained within the Glencripesdale estate are survivals dating from the 1870s of some of the earliest mass concrete structures in the West Highlands, including a gardener's and shepherds' cottages, kennels, sheds and jetties.
