Robert Rae was the owner of this property at the time of Griffith's Valuation, when it was valued at £5 5s. It is named as Altavilla on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map. In 1837 Lewis refers to Ardmoniel Cottage, the seat of R. Rae, but also to Altavilla, residence of J. Morrogh. Bary mentions that Altavilla was associated with the Morrogh family. It was later the residence of the Dodd family and is still extant.
