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

Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating sites and places at the national level. These designations are Scheduled monuments, Listed buildings, Inventory of gardens and designed landscapes and Inventory of historic battlefields.

We make recommendations to the Scottish Government about historic marine protected areas, and the Scottish Ministers decide whether to designate.

Listing is the process that identifies, designates and provides statutory protection for buildings of special architectural or historic interest as set out in the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings which are found to be of special architectural or historic interest using the selection guidance published in Designation Policy and Selection Guidance (2019)

Listed building records provide an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building which has been identified by its statutory address. The description and additional information provided are supplementary and have no legal weight.

These records are not definitive historical accounts or a complete description of the building(s). If part of a building is not described it does not mean it is not listed. The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

The legal part of the listing is the address/name of site which is known as the statutory address. Addresses and building names may have changed since the date of listing. Even if a number or name is missing from a listing address it will still be listed. Listing covers both the exterior and the interior and any object or structure fixed to the building. Listing also applies to buildings or structures not physically attached but which are part of the curtilage (or land) of the listed building as long as they were erected before 1 July 1948.

While Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating listed buildings, the planning authority is responsible for determining what is covered by the listing, including what is listed through curtilage. However, for listed buildings designated or for listings amended from 1 October 2015, legal exclusions to the listing may apply.

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 1997 Act. 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 subsequent legislation.

Listed building consent is required for changes to a listed building which affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest. The relevant planning authority is the point of contact for applications for listed building consent.
