Full Description

Cruck framed barn at Fernaig Farm, Achmore. <1>

The barn was listed at Category B in 1982.

Fernaig, near Achmore Fernaig House, approached by a soaring beech hedge, has a notable barn, 18th/early 19th century, whose ramshackle exterior belies the splendour within. A rare survival, with six pairs of solid cruck blades. <2>

A condition survey of the building, with proposals for repairs and conservation, was produced by Addison Conservation & Design in 2016. <3>
