Full Description

In a 1949 prospectus for the sale of the Strathpeffer Estate, this single-storey dwelling house is described as having been previously a doctor’s consulting rooms and was let to Dr. David Dick. This appears to have been the consulting rooms attached to the spa - with ordinary consultations taking place at Dr. Bearn’s surgery in Eaglestone during the 1920s-1930s (MHG16305), while Dr Thompson from Dingwall consulted in Craigvar twice a week (MHG16224). The building must be on the site of the urinal noted on the OS 1st edition map; it is present by the time the map was revised in 1906. The maps included in the 1949 sales prospectus show that the sexagonal building at the rear of the building was separate, though it has now been incorporated into the main part of the building.
