005 [situation] About 7 chains N.N.W. [North North West] of Mountquhanie House.
This is the ruins of the old house of Mountquhanie; the outer walls are nearly the original height of three storeys high, and bear maks of great antiquity. The date of its erection, however is not known.

Mr. William Morris land steward on the estate and the gentleman who acts as Tutor to the family of Mountquhanie states that there are no documents extant to show when this house was erected, but they suppose it to have been between the 15th and 16th centuries. There are two stones taken from this ruin and built into the new offices - which bear the dates 1557 and 1683 but it cannot with certainty be ascertained if these bear any relation with the erection or repair of this building.
