Corehouse - Image 1

The estate was established in the 14th century and remains in private ownership.  Corehouse was built in 1824-27 by Edward Blore of London, who also worked on Buckingham Palace.  It is considered the pioneer house in Scotland of Tudor Revival domestic architecture.

Corehouse has a pictureque profile with many shafted chimney stacks and carefully contrived massing so as to appear to have evolved in an unplanned manner.  The interior is well conserved and is focused on a lantern stair tower.

Close to the house is Corra Castle built in the 15th century.

Guided tours limited numbers 15 - 20, allocated on first come basis.
