Type and Period (2)
- CARRIAGE HOUSE (Built, 18th Century to 19th Century - 1750 AD to 1814 AD (between))
- STABLE (Built, 18th Century to 19th Century - 1750 AD to 1814 AD (between))
West Block of a pair of stables that flank the north entrance to Dunrobin Castle. A pair of round-headed carriage house entrances front the advanced wing. The Listed Building record ascribes a date of later 18th century to the building <1>. The north entrance became the principle castle entrance when the road, contructed c.1810 by T Telford, passed to the north of the castle. Consequently, E Beaton ascribes a slightly later date of c.1810 to the building <2>, with Gifford giving a still later date of 1814 <3>.
