Black Clauchrie House is a late Victorian manor house, located on the outskirts of the village of Barrhill in South Ayrshire, Scotland, adjacent to the Galloway Forest Park. It is protected as a category C(s) listed building.
It was originally built as a hunting lodge between 1898 and 1901 in the Arts and Crafts style for Robert David Jardine Mein-Austin (1864–1910) and his wife Flora. The house was designed by the Ayrshire-based architect James K. Hunter (1863–1929). Some of its features include a wood-beamed glass house, a ballroom and a minstrels' gallery. Some of the house was taken down by owners Richard Akerman and Yvonne Hawker before 2003. Originally part of a 7,500-acre (30 km2) estate, it is now set in 14 acres (57,000 m2) of land.
