Description Tourin House was owned by Sir Richard Musgrave at the time of Griffith's Valuation, when it was valued at £41 10s. An earlier house, attached to Tourin Castle, is located nearby [X095965]. In 1850 it was valued at £49. In 1837, Lewis refers to this earlier Tourin House as the seat of Sir R. Musgrave, "composed partly of an ancient castle, commanding extensive and picturesque views".In 1906 the larger house had a valuation of £64 while the other buildings were valued at almost £10. The Musgrave estate still owned the properties. The ITA survey of the 1940s noted "Toureen" as the resident of Captain Jamison, formerly the property of the Musgraves. Both houses are still extant and occupied.
