Saddell House
Saddell House
Showing the rear of the house, built in 1774 by Colonel Donald Campbell. Saddell House stands right on the edge of the beach to take advantage of views across both the Kilbrannan Sound and the fertile plain inland. It is a typical Scottish lairdís house of its period, with generously proportioned rooms and large light windows. The house also proved a good base for hunting and fishing and it was while an eventual tenant, a Reverend Bramwell, was out shooting in September 1899 that disaster struck. A chimney fire spread to the attic, destroying the roof and gutting the house. Only the walls and a fine set of service rooms in the basement survived. Fortunately, the house was judged worthy of repair and was rebuilt almost at once.
