Historic Profile: The Cattanach House is significant for its atypical use of roc-faced limestone for a single-family house. In the nineteenth century, limestone was commonly used in the construction of industrial and commercial buildings, but was extremely rare in residences. Built by Donald Cattanach, a mason by profession, the house exists today a rare local example of an innovative building material for a cottage-size structure.
