Auchinleck House

Simpson and Brown Architects

The category A-listed Auchinleck House was built between 1755 and 1762. Simpson & Brown carried out an initial phase of work at Auchinleck in the late 1980s, primarily addressing the dry rot and other emergency works. After sitting vacant for over a decade, Auchinleck was sold to The Landmark Trust who, with grant aid and private donations, were able to fund a full restoration. The house is now leased by the Trust as a holiday let.

The most recent phase of work concentrated on reinstating interior finishes, including large areas of new lime plasterwork, cornicing and plaster enrichments, and the painstaking repair and refitting of existing joinery and fireplaces.
