Garvamore Barracks
Garvamore Barracks
This former Kingshouse was used at one time as a keeper's house and is believed to have been a barracks for government troops stationed on the Corrieyairack pass. It was used by both soldiers and civilians who had to cross the pass. Once the Corrieyairack became a drove road, the drovers used Garvamore as a 'stance' for overnighting their cattle, as water and grazing were available. It is thought that the long two storey building dates from 1740. The building is listed Category A and is registered as a Building At Risk by the Scottish Civic Trust (2009).
