Craigeuan Coach House and Stables were originally built to provide ancillary accommodation to the main estate house of Cultoquhey between 1818 and 1822 for Anthony Maxtone, the 12th Laird of Cultoquhey. The family moved into the new principal estate house in 1833 which lies immediately to the west, has now been converted into the Cultoquhey House Hotel.

The property would benefit from internal refurbishment and possibly a degree of reconfiguration or extension, subject to securing the requisite planning permission.

As the name would suggest, the Coach House and Steadings was traditionally used when Craigeuan formed part of the larger estate of Cultoquhey.
