Valuation Rolls

Valuation rolls are lists of properties and their owners, compiled for the purposes of taxation. Those compiled between 1855 and 1989 by County and Burgh Assessors constitute one of the most used sources of information by many types of researcher in Scottish archives.1

The pages below give a list of the tenants and buildings in the Valuation Rolls of Ardchattan,2
These are not the full details - which are in each sheet which have been downloaded, and are available at the archive. The pages also give us information like the actual value of the rental, (really interesting to see how this changes, and to understand what money had to be found to maintain the house or holding) as well as relationships between tenants and sub-tenants.
