Brief description of site

Invereil House is a baronial-style house with grounds laid out at the end of the 19th century in the eastern end of Linkhouse Wood. By the early-1990s it had been subdivided, with four owners.

Brief history of site

The Invereil House designed landscape was laid out on 2.5 hectares of land in Linkhouse Wood in the late 1890s. Despite several changes of ownership the estate remained intact until the 1960s. By the 1990s both the house and grounds had been split across four ownerships, although the house has since been returned to single ownership.
