Probably late 19th century. Single storey, roughly 4-bay piend-roofed deer larder with encircling timber columned veranda. Roughly dressed granite rubble with red sandstone ashlar long and short quoins. Several timber-boarded doors; a mixture of conventionally-proportioned windows and slit windows. 5 by 9 bay veranda supported on painted tree-trunk columns. 3 louvred vents to roof ridge. Welsh slate with metal flashings.

Statement of Special Interest

A good example of a little-altered deer larder occupying a prominent and picturesque location at the E end of Loch Lee. Neither the deer larder nor the kennels that stand nearby are shown on the 1st edition OS map, so it would be reasonable to assume that they were built at about the same time. However, this is unlikely to have been the case as the deer larder has red sandstone dressings while the kennels are built entirely of granite. The use of Welsh slate suggests that the deer larder was constructed after the opening of the Brechin and Edzell District Railway in 1896, although the slate could have been taken by road from Kirriemuir station, which was opened in 1861.



Shown on 2nd edition OS map (1900). Buildings at Kirkton of Invermark (plan drawn for insurance purposes), 1926 at National Archives, ref RHP 86294/29.

About Listed Buildings

Listing is the way that a building or structure of special architectural or historic interest is recognised by law through the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings of special architectural or historic interest using the criteria published in the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement.

The statutory listing address is the legal part of the listing. The information in the listed building record gives an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building(s). It is not a definitive historical account or a complete description of the building(s). The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

Listing covers both the exterior and the interior. Listing can cover structures not mentioned which are part of the curtilage of the building, such as boundary walls, gates, gatepiers, ancillary buildings etc. The planning authority is responsible for advising on what is covered by the listing including the curtilage of a listed building. For information about curtilage see Since 1 October 2015 we have been able to exclude items from a listing. If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect current legislation.

If you want to alter, extend or demolish a listed building you need to contact your planning authority to see if you need listed building consent. The planning authority is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
