Log Cabins

The log cabins were originally built as holiday cabins above a “clubhouse” or hotel. They are all privately owned and now around 50% of them are lived in permanently. For further information see the audio recording by Tony Reid, who originally owned the land and had the cabins and hotel built.

Tony Reid also wrote a book about the history of Strathardle, and includes some personal memories of building the log cabins.

Comments about this page

  • The lorry in the second photo belonged to the long established business of James Webster & Sons, Haulage Contractors, Ballintuim whose main business was livestock transport and delivering agricultural lime from Wester Bleaton Quarry. They ran a small fleet of 3 or 4 vehicles and their yard was in front of Hillview, Ballintuim which was the family home. They stopped trading in the 1970s.
