Re-categorised as C(S) from B for Group (2006). The listing relates specifically to the group interest of the subject. It applies, as always, to interior as well as exterior, as appropriate to building type.

Statement of Interest

Probably built for let as lodgings for summer visitors as at Tower Buildings and Murthly Terrace.

Items 68-100 form B group with items 18-20 in original list.

An outstanding example of an early-mid Victorian Highland resort in a setting of great natural beauty, built mainly

following the opening of the Perth and Dunkeld Railway in 1856. In 1865 it was noted that the trade of Dunkeld and

Birnam had suffered with the extension of the Railway. The main development was thus between 1856 and 1863, when Birnam was the terminus.

Very completely preserved to date St Mary's Tower and Birnam House being the only serious losses while the only intrusion of any consequence has been a modern bungalow inserted between Birnam Hotel and Oransay.
