History of Glenaros House

Glenaros Estate, known formerly as Achadashenaig has been in the current family’s ownership since 1865.
Glenaros House is the principal house of the Glenaros Estate.
A short walk from Glenaros house you will find

Cnoc na Sroine Dun

The conspicuous remains of this dun lie at the head of the valley of the Allt a’ Chaisteil, about 950 m south of Glenaros House.  It is sited on a rocky outcrop and can be accessed from the south west over rocky ground.  The ground falls steeply away on the north-east side.
It is oval in plan.  The wall is 3 m thick and considerable stretches of the inner and outer faces remain.  The best preserved section of the outer face is on the south side, where it stands 1.6 m high and slopes inwards as it gains height.  The entrance is about 1.8 m wide and is on the WSW side.  The inner court measures 28 m by 19 m.
South west of the dun the rocky shelf is bordered by the remains of a dry-stone wall which, it is suggested, was an outwork.

No rally this year, still loved it. Trying weather though! Loved the new shower!

An unexpected few days in a wonderful house. Would love to visit it again.

A special place shared with special friends. Lovley walks, tearooms and food. Beautiful scenery and views of eagles. We will be back!

Books! History! Seeing hooded crows, ravens, buzzards, sparrowhawks and sea eagles from the house grounds is a bird watchers paradise. Woods abound with interesting fungi and of course, logs for the fire. Aga is the heart of the house. Cheers!
