Cottages at Charleston, Dalguise

View of Charleston at Dalguise, 4 1/2 miles north north west of Dunkeld showing houses with roof lights and a roadway.

 

These late 18th century white washed estate cottages were laid out in a symmetrical arrangement with two-storey end houses and a gap in the centre. Dalguise House was the principal house on the estate. It was built in 1753 and the architect was Andrew Heiton Senior. The house was rented by the father of Beatrix Potter between 1871 - 1881 and Beatrix spent her summer there. This part of the parish of Little Dunkeld was famous for its orchards.
