Balmacara House, c.1801 House built on a virgin site for Sir Hugh Innes, the original lofty dormered block - depicted by William Daniell in 1817 - still visible at the centre. Aggrandisement for subsequent owners included extensions by Ross & Joass in 1861 for Sir Alexander Matheson (he used this as his home in Lochalsh after Inverinate House burnt down, until Duncraig Castle was built), and additions by Ross & Macbeth, 1902. Latterday institutional use has introduced a somewhat municipal air, not helped by the addition of a barrack-like wing. The A87 now careers through Innes's designed landscape, much of which was lost to later forestry plantations, although early 19th century plantings survive in policies east of the house.
Balmacara Mains was built as the school masters house, for the the time that Balmacara House operated as a school teaching young men to work the land.
