Full Description

Murray thought that this villa dates back to the 1860s (Murray 1985), but it was built in 1839 (Margaret Scott). On the OS 1st edition map (1876), Craigvar is named as Park House. During the 1920s-1930s, Dr Thompson from Dingwall consulted in Craigvar twice a week; this was in addition to both ordinary consultations taking place at Dr. Bearn’s surgery in Eaglestone (MHG16305), and to the consulting rooms attached to the spa (MHG22690). During WWII, it was taken over for military accommodation, housing amongst others the Norwegian chaplain.
