Barcaldine House

Formally known as Dalfuir

Barcaldine House [NM 965414] and formerly known as Dalfuir, dates from 1724, and is a large rambling and haphazard mansion of several periods and styles, extended down the years, and was built some distance away (hence the village of Barcaldine is not near the castle). Much of the estate was sold to the Forestry Commission in the 1920s, and the house was derelict in the 1950s, but was restored in the 1980s. The walled garden houses a caravan park.1

House and Policies, and most of the unplantable hill land, were subsequently re-sold.
