Description

Loch Lomond And Trossachs National Park Planning Authority

A much weathered obelisk type sundial consisting of square shaft, bulged capital and tapering finial. Reported to be circa 1630, probably originally set near to Leny House. The sundial stands adjacent to the NW section of the walled garden (see separate listing), it is set in a lawned area belonging to the nearby late 20th century bungalow 'Sundial House'. It has an historical connection with Leny House, early date and interesting design.

4 moulded compartments are discernable to each face of the shaft. The capital and obelisk at the time of the site visit was covered in moss making full inspection impossible, 2004.
