Notes A striking modern mansion, reminiscent of work of Sir Edwin Lutyens. (Historic Scotland)

Euan Wallace MP inherited the estate on condition that he made it his home. He employed Miller to design this enormous house in English Manorial Revival style, complete with a theatre and indoor tennis courts. Kildonan was ready for occupation by 1923, the world it was designed for had all but vanished and the interiors were never completed. (Rob Close)

Euan Wallace's second wife, Barbara Lutyens, was the daughter of architect Sir Edwin Lutyens.
