Full Description

The Old Manse (NAT)
OS 1:10,000 map, (1975)

Former Manse, Acharacle: This building, now occupied as a private residence, is an almost unaltered example of the single-storeyed manses built to Telford's design by the Commissioners for Building Churches in the Highlands of Scotland. It was completed in 1829.
The house is constructed of rubble masonry, harled and whitewashed, with painted sandstone dressings; the hipped roofs are slated. Originally H-shaped on plan, it has been modified by the infilling of the re-entrant angle at the rear.
