The Ice House, Crinan Ferry

The Ice House was built in 1833 to support the local fishing industry, probably acting as a store for fish. Partly dug out of the rock, it originally had two chambers. In recent years it has been converted to a dwelling house, an alteration which is invisible from the road apart from the insertion of light tubes into the barrel vaulted roof.

The building is listed Category B – more information on the British Listed Buildings website and is listed on the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historic Monuments of  Scotland’s Canmore website with Canmore ID 39188.
