Tulloch Ard, c.1800 Former manse (until 1960s), with front block added by Alexander Ross in 1871 to form double-pile plan. Good group of outbuildings, including contemporary hay/threshing barn (altered) with pair of winnowing doors. Timber doocot built by Lachlan Stewart, c.1985, with pyramidal tin roof.

[In times of strife, the Seaforth chiefs used to set a barrel of burning tar upon the knoll at Tulloch Ard, a signal to their clansmen to turn up at Eilean Donan, prepared for combat.]
