Description Major Fairfield was the owner of Mount Eagle at the time of Griffith's Valuation when it was valued at £10 15s. Bary writes that it was built by him in 1830 and Lewis recorded it as his residence in 1837.The Ordnance Survey Name Books describe it as "a handsome cottage". It was most frequently used as a hunting lodge. Later in the nineteenth century it was the property of Colonel Drummond and resided in by his agent, Mr. Black. In 1906 it was owned by Charles Drummond and valued at £12. The property was eventually sold to the Forestry service in the mid-twentieth century when the house was demolished.
