Once the site of a stalker's cottage, the building was substantially extended during 1866-1869 with stables, cellar and coalhouse; keeper's cottage and offices. In 1867-8. 2-storey, U-plan, gabled house was constructed with small court enclosed to NW by single storey outbuildings.
On the death of the Prince Consort, Queen Victoria could no longer bear to visit Allt-na-Giubshaich NO2985 : Allt-na-giubhsaich Lodge, and so executed his earlier wishes to extend the Glas Allt cottage at the head of the loch. She visited the newly constructed shiel frequently. (Source: British Listed Buildings LinkExternal link )
